Science and Innovation Research

The developments that support a European Research and Higher Education Area, increased mobility and highlight the need for stronger profiling are challenges for all participants in regional and national scientific and research systems.

The research group Technology, Innovation and Policy Consulting closely follows trends in science and research policy, and supports scientific institutions, to meet these challenges. The essential foundation for this is the study of the scientific performance of universities, research institutions, teams and companies as well as their behavior during interactions and cooperation.

The analysis of gender and diversity of scientists involved in research is a focus of POLICIES. We not only have the necessary theoretical background to conduct these analyses, but also possess a broad overview of knowledge that allows us to draw international comparisons and exchange experiences. In this area, we are working on the development of indicators that are as precise as possible and use appropriate (micro)data sources for detailed analyses.
