EURITO NEWSLETTER


The EURITO project aims at developing new indicators for R&I policy, using new types of data, novel analytical methods and interactive visualizations. In this line, EURITO has been working on different streams of analysis to determine the potential of different data sources for addressing burning R&I policy questions, in order to generate a set of high quality and automatically updatable Relevant, Inclusive, Timely, Trusted and Open indicators. 

In this regard, here we bring relevant documents where the results achieved to date are presented:

EURITO REPORTS: 

  • D3.4 Code and Data Repositories, with data collection and pre-processing base code and Indicator generation notebooks to ensure transparency and reproducibility of the achieved results.
EURITO EVENTS:
  • European Commission meeting with parallel Horizon2020 project Data4Impact (24th January 2020): We will share an update on the user research component with both technical advisors and front-end visualization developers at the Commission, as well as the policymakers.
  • Workshop with German R&I policymaking community (10th March 2020):The workshop, co-organised with the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF), will provide an overview of new innovation indicators used to plan, monitor and evaluate R&I policies.
EURITO PUBLICATIONS:
  • Tracing Paths and Connecting Multiple Design Domains: An Information Visualization Approach to Product Architecture Modelling
  • Quantifying technological change as a combinatorial process.
EURITO CALLS TO ACTION!!
  • Collaborate by joining any of our ​project’s Stakeholder Groups or our User testing.


Code and Data Repositories

 

The infrastructure of the EURITO project, as well as the linkage between the defined indicators and generated outputs is provided to assist the further validation and refinement of indicators. The main purpose of this document is to enable transparency and explaining the process of generating innovation indicators to ensure the future reuse of the achieved results.

The overall infrastructure of the EURITO project has been organized in the three main modules:

  1. GitHub code repository. This repository contains the main base code for data collection, preprocessing and indicator generation functions, as well as project documentation. This base code is open source and available for everyone to clone and use further.
  2. Amazon Web Services (AWS) EC2 servers. The main role of these servers is to run the code from GitHub code repositories and return data and indicators.      
  3. AWS S3 repository. This repository acts as a storage of generated indicators, database backups and configuration files.

European Commission meeting with parallel Horizon2020 project Data4Impact (24 January 2020)

 

EURITO, Data4Impact and other data-mining initiatives (e.g. the Tracking of Research Results in FP7 - a service contract commissioned by Department B in DG RTD- ) organize a demonstration event of the latest methodologies and results in R&I monitoring and evaluation, which will take place at REA’s premises (Covent Garden, COV2 18-SDRA) on 24th of January, starting at 10:00 a.m., it is scheduled for 2.5 hours. The discussion will be on new types of data and indicators for the EU FPs.

Workshop with German R&I policymaking community (10 March 2020, Berlin)

 

Research and innovation (R&I) are constantly evolving, which is why the indicator system needs to be further developed in response to emerging topics as well as newly available digital data.

Therefore, we would very much like to invite you to the joint workshop of BMBF and EURITO on "New Innovation Indicators - From Research to Policy Application",  10th of March 2020 from 09:00 to 16:00 at Fraunhofer-Forum Berlin (Anna-Louisa-Karsch-Straße 2, 10178 Berlin). 

The workshop will provide an overview of the results achieved so far by the EURITO project as well as various projects of the BMBF projects. In addition, representatives of the European Commission, the OECD and the BMBF and will provide input on policymakers’ needs regarding R&I indicators. This will be followed by a discussion with all participants on the effective use of the results and their transfer into the process of policymaking.

In case you are interested in participating, please contact PilarCaro (+34 914 36 47 74, pilar.caro@cotec.es / info@eurito.eu) or register through Eventbrite link.
