Workshop on Developing Science, Technology, and Innovation Indicators for the Future Agenda and Participants
*

AGENDA

This workshop is part of a study by the Panel on Developing Science, Technology, and Innovation Indicators for the Future. During this two-day meeting, scholars and practitioners from around the world will discuss specific datasets, frameworks, methods, and tools for measuring science, technology and innovation (STI) activities at the 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 communication technology (ICT). Presentations and networked discussions will focus attention on the policy relevance of redesigned or new indicators.

DAY 1: Monday, July 11, 2011

8:00-9:00 AM REGISTRATION IN LOBBY (breakfast available in main foyer)
   
9:00-9:10 WELCOME AND OVERVIEW
Cochairs: Robert Litan (Kauffman Foundation) and Andrew Wyckoff (OECD)
  • Connie Citro (Committee on National Statistics, National Research Council)
  • Steve Merrill (Board on Science, Technology, and Economic Policy, National Research Council)
   
9:10-10:35 SESSION I: NEXT-GENERATION STI STATISTICS—FRAMEWORKS AND DATA
Objective: Identify what the federal statistical system can produce now regarding STI trends. Specific measures of business and university inputs and outputs and related outcomes and impacts are welcomed. What can be done now with existing surveys and 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 of Southern California) Presenters:
  • John Haltiwanger (University of Maryland)
  • Alicia Robb (Kauffman Foundation)
  • Stefano Bertuzzi (National Institutes of Health, STAR METRICS)

130 CAPTURING CHANGE IN SCIENCE, TECHNOLOGY, AND INNOVATION 10:45-12:45 pm Session II: International STI Indicators—Recent Developments  recent developments in measuring STI and what is currently planned for the future. Objective: Identify 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 terms (the next 5-10 years)? Chair: Michael Mandel (University of 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.) •  ugo Hollanders (United Nations University-Maastricht Economic and Social Research Institute on H Innovation and Technology [UNU-MERIT], Netherlands) • Shinichi Akaike (Institute of Innovation Research, Hitotsubashi University, Japan) • Cheonsik Woo (Korean Development Institute) 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.

Determine new uses for STI indicators at firms, particularly multinationals. Establish what policy makers and university sponsored research officers/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 next 5-10 years?
