EURITO NEWSLETTER


The EURITO project aims to develop updatable Relevant, Inclusive, Timely, Trusted and Open indicators for R&I policy, using new types of data, novel analytical methods and interactive visualizations. 

In this regard, in this newsletter, we will share with you relevant information, documents, and other information we think might be of your interest, like:

EURITO NEWS: 

  • EURITO COVID-19 pivot project. The European Commission is mobilising its R&D efforts to tackle COVID-19. EURITO has evolved to support and develop a COVID-19 pivot where we would seek to validate, automate and expand on the Commission’s efforts by generating evidence about the impact of EC funded projects in the fight against COVID-19.

EURITO COVID-19 PIVOT PROJECT

 
The EURITO project is scoping options to create Relevant, Inclusive, Trusted and Open indicators to measure R&D efforts to tackle COVID-19 within the EU ecosystem. Our work in the EURITO COVID-19 pivot would seek to validate, automate and expand on the Commission’s efforts to:

  • Measure how existing H2020 projects are pivoting to tackle COVID-19 beyond those supported through targeted funding calls
  • Identify other projects and organisations that could play a role in the mission against COVID-19
  • Analyse the composition of the EC response to the pandemic
  • Generate evidence about the impact of EC funded projects in the fight against COVID-19
Here we outline some of the options to do this and the goals they relate to:

1. Analysis and collection of data, measuring the topical composition of COVID-19 projects and the deployment of emerging technologies in the fight against COVID-19.
2. Data linking to map the trajectory and position of EC funded institutions/organisations in various networks. 

If you are interested in collaborating in the pivot project or in participating in the validation phase, please do not hesitate to contact us at info@eurito.eu

  • ‘International Diffusion of the Information Security Management System Standard ISO/IEC 27001: Exploring the Role of Culture’ conference paper, in the European Conference on Information Systems 2020s.  M Mirtsch, J Pohlisch, K Blind
Abstract: In the wake of digitalization, organizations are increasingly exposed to risks associated with security breaches and must take measures to preserve the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of information, and to ensure business continuity. The international standard ISO/IEC 27001 assists organizations in setting up, maintaining and continually improving their information security management systems. This paper explores why the diffusion of the international management system standard ISO/IEC 27001 differs across countries.

Abstract:In the light of digitalization and recent EU policy initiatives, information is an important asset that organizations of all sizes and from all sectors should secure. However, in order to provide common requirements for the implementation of an information security management system, the internationally well-accepted ISO/IEC 27001 standard has not shown the expected growth rate since its publication more than a decade ago. In this article, we apply web mining to explore the adoption of ISO/IEC 27001 through a series of 2664 out of more than 900 000 German firms from the Mannheim Enterprise Panel dataset that refers to this standard on their websites. Based on our findings, we derive implications for policymakers and management and critically assess the suitability of web mining to explore the adoption of management system standards

  • Drivers for Companies’ Entry Into Standard-Setting Organizations’, in IEEE Transactions on Engineering Management. Page(s): 1 – 12. DOI: 10.1109/TEM.2020.2975427. Knut Blind, Annika Lorenz, Julius Rauber. 
Abstract: Globalization has been a main driver for firms’ entry into standard-setting organizations (SSOs). These global multifirm settings have caught attention due to tensions arising from simultaneous collaboration and competition among firms as well as due to the increasing geographical complexity of the standardization process. SSOs present one form of a multifirm environment, where companies proactively and voluntarily collaborate to develop a new standard. Although a growing body of literature has tried to understand firms’ underlying rationales for engaging in SSOs, we know little about firm-level characteristics influencing the propensity to enter a standard-setting organization. Using these unique data, we can observe the moment when firms enter a technical committee of a formal SSO and, hence, tackle the problem of simultaneity.

  • Visualising Systems: Mapping Systems Features and Interactive Information Visualisations in Design. In Proceedings of the Design Society (Vol. 1, pp. 2295-2304). [394] https://doi.org/10.1017/dsd.2020.138. Idrissov, A., Škec, S., & Maier, A. (2020). 
Abstract: Interactive computer-supported information visualisations are being increasingly used in design. However, while there are frameworks that discuss how traditional representations, such as sketches, CAD models and static diagrams support design tasks, no such mapping exists for interactive visualisations of product-related information. As novel contributions, this paper reviews the design literature for the use of information visualisations. Moreover, using systems theory and Gestalt principles, insights on the applicability of such information visualisations for various design tasks are given.

  • Immersive Visualisations in Design: Using Augmented Reality (AR) for Information Presentation. In Proceedings of the Design Society (Vol. 1, pp. 1215-1224). [183] https://doi.org/10.1017/dsd.2020.33 Bravo, A., & Maier, A. (2020).
Abstract: Immersive visualisations introduce new possibilities for experiencing design, and as such for presenting information. To date, studies in design have focused mostly on immersive visualisations supporting product decisions. However, little attention has been paid to information presentation, e.g. in design reviews, for decisions in the boardroom, and/or for client presentations. This study with industry practitioners identifies information presentation practices and challenges, develops an immersive visualisation prototype, and explores opportunities for the use of immersive visualisations.

CALL FOR PAPERS 
 
Special Issue "Sustainability and Standardization" call for papers. The purpose of this Special Issue is to shed light on the potential contributions of standardization to sustainability issues.

Here, big data and new data sources provided by the Internet and social media networks, like those investigated within the European Horizon 2020 project EURITO, might help to provide the data base to investigate the new challenging questions about the relationship between sustainability and standardization. The deadline for manuscript submissions has been ultimately extended to 31th of October 2020.
