10:45-12:45 PM SESSION II: INTERNATIONAL STI INDICATORS—RECENT DEVELOPMENTS
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 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.)

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 application 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)
   
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 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?
Chairs: Barbara Fraumeni (University of Southern Maine)
