Network indicators: science, technology and innovation

Objective

This project purports to construct and analyse network indicators in science, technology and innovation, using extensive and unique databases on patent applications and patent citations, bibliometrics, and inter-firm partnerships. The partners will prove the usefulness of the constructed network indicators in: empirically appraising the question of network embedded ness of firms and the question of technological/organizational complexity and co-evolution; appraising important policy questions related to the concept of the European Research Area, specifically the identification and effective description of technological/industrial clusters and regional industry agglomerations. The project directly addresses Casita's priorities to provide relevant and comparable indicators at different levels required for the, design, co-ordination and assessment of RTD strategies in Europe and the formation of a consistent European policy on research.
