Indicators and data for European analysis

Objective

The project will contribute to advance the state of the art in innovation-oriented science, technology and innovation indicators, particularly as a tool for policy use. This will be done through theoretical, methodological and empirical work involving both existing indicators, and the development of completely new indicators.

This project will:

- analyse the implications of new theories of innovation and economic change both for policy and for indicators needs; against this background, existing indicators will be critically reviewed, and areas for new indicators will be proposed
- develop a Guide for Policymakers which will overview all available science, technology and innovation indicators and provide a sophisticated guide to their modes of use
- develop six completely new areas of indicators, focusing on analytical methods and/or survey instruments, aimed at extending the sectoral and functional range of existing and potential indicators, with the specific objective of a substantial improvement in our understanding of the service sector, inter-industry diversity, system interactions, environmental issues, innovation inputs and human resources.

The Guide for Policymakers will be a very useful tool for all institutions, at different levels, within the European Union in charge of S&T policy. A final report will lead to a theoretical and methodological examination of the possibilities for new indicators, and the development of appropriate questionnaire design.
