AGENDA

 

This workshop is part of a study by the Panel on During this two-day meeting, scholars and practitioners from around the world will discuss specific datasets, frameworks, methods, and tools for measuring science and technology innovation (STI) activities at national and subnational levels, and for developed and developing countries. Participants will discuss: (1) metrics that have been shown to track changes in national economic growth, productivity and other indicators of social development; (2) frameworks for gathering data on academic inputs to research, development and translation processes toward commercialization of new scientific outputs, with specific regional outlooks; and (3) next-generation methods for gathering and disseminating data that give snapshot views of scientific research and innovation in sectors, such as biotechnology and information and communications technology (ICT). Presentations and networked discussions will focus attention on the policy relevance of redesigned or new indicators.

administrative data? What do users want that requires new methods of gathering and disseminating data (types of data, linkages of agency surveys and periodicity)? What should NCSES produce to meet demand? Chair: Bob Litan (Kauffman Foundation) Discussant: John Rolph (University Southern California) Presenters:  John Haltiwanger (University Maryland)  Alicia Robb (Kauffman Foundation)  Stefano Bertuzzi (National Institutes of Health; STAR METRICS)  Matthieu Delescluse (European Commission) 10:35-10:45 BREAK (refreshments available in lobby) 10:45 AM - SESSION II: INTERNATIONAL STI INDICATORS—RECENT DEVELOPMENTS 12:45 PM Objective: Identify recent developments in measuring STI and what is currently planned for the future. Discussion should reveal what has been successfully and unsuccessfully measured. What are critical bottlenecks and perceived opportunities? Policy relevance of indicators is key. What global STI metrics and indicators should NCSES develop in the near and medium term (the next 5-10 years)? Chair: Michael Mandel (University Pennsylvania) Discussant: Andrew Wyckoff (OECD) Presenters:  Jonathan Haskel (Imperial College Business School, U.K.)  Brian MacAulay (National Endowment for Science, Technology and the Arts, U.K.  Hugo Hollanders (UNU-MERIT, Netherlands)  Shinichi Akaike (Institute of Innovation Research, Hitotsubashi University, Japan) 12:45-1:45 LUNCH (in main foyer) 1:45-3:45 SESSION III: NEXT-GENERATION STI STATISTICS—FRONTIER METHODS Objective: Identify frameworks and tools beyond survey instruments that yield measurements of research and commercialization productivity. Details on how a statistical agency can utilize these tools are key. Education and workforce indicators are needed. Which tools are ripe for applications that NCSES should use to produce new STI indicators? Chair: Geoff Davis (Google) Discussant: Richard Freeman (Harvard University) Presenters:  Erik Brynjolfsson (Massachusetts Institute of Technology)  Lee Giles (Penn State University)  Carl Bergstrom (University of Washington)  Richard Price (Academia.edu) 51

3:45-4:00 BREAK (refreshments available in lobby) 4:00-5:00 SESSION IV: ROUNDTABLE: INDUSTRY, ACADEMIC AND GOVERNMENT PERSPECTIVES Objective: Identify what firms, universities and statistical agencies can be expected to contribute to data inputs for STI indicators. Determine new uses for STI indicators at firms, particularly multinationals. Establish what policymakers and university SPO/technology transfer managers need to know in their respective decision-making processes. Where will the indicators be used and why, and why have they not already been developed? What are the new data inputs and new statistical outputs that should be the laser focus for NCSES in the 5-10 years?
