Which is the structure of RISIS?
RISIS contains 12 datasets that will integrate with four new datasets dealing with important lasting research and policy issues:
- Three datasets concern world largest firms (CIB2), European venture capital (VICO) and fast growing mid-sized firms (Cheetah);
- Two datasets deal with European trans-border programmes (EUPRO e JoREP);
- One Register on European public research actors, ORGREG, which serves as repository, on universities, PROs and university hospitals;
- Output datasets of knowledge dynamics enrich for analysis at actor and metropolitan area levels: two datasets of Publications and Patents (CWTS Publications Database and RISIS Patent, respectively), with a demonstrator dataset for the study of emerging technologies (NANO S&T);
- One dataset, RISIS-ETER an extension of the European Tertiary Education Register (ETER) database with additional data on additional variables particularly concerning research output (EU-FP participations from EUPRO, scientific publications from CWTS publications database, patents from RISIS Patent).
- Other two datasets have been focused on “PhD and careers” (PROFILE and MORE), and will be complimented by a dataset on non-academic PhD careers;
- A database on science and innovation policy evaluations (SIPER) is linked to the OECD-World Bank IPP platform, and it will be enhanced by a dataset on effective portfolios of public founding instruments on research and development.
The implementation of new datasets concerns on four relevant key issues for research and policy: social innovation, non-technological innovation, the role of PhDs in society, portfolios of public funding instruments. In particular, EFIL on public funding instruments, ESID on social innovation, and TM Trademark on trademarks.
