Welcome to the RISIS Newsletter #2!
Here, you can find our new research topic, outputs and publications focusing on last RISIS results, events which involved our team.
 
We are proud RISIS activity is growing: Have fun reading!
 
 
 
# RISIS (Research Infrastructure for Science and Innovation policy Studies) is a project under Horizon 2020 programme. It gathers 18 partners aiming to transform the field of STI studies into an advanced research community.
 
# RISIS datasets cover five critical dimensions: ERA dynamics, firm innovation dynamics, public sector research, research careers and a repository on research and innovation policy evaluations.
 
# RISIS newsletter is scheduled every six months, and is an opportunity to talk about RISIS research topics, outputs and publications focusing on last RISIS results, events which involved our team.
 
RISIS Outputs & Activities
 
 
US VS EUROPEAN UNIVERSITIES, BEHIND RANKINGS
 
All of us, at least once in life, we have heard about “best universities”, both in Europe, and around the world. Yet, define excellence is not a simple job. Researchers of USI (Università della Svizzera italiana) in collaboration with University of Turin, have shown a strong relationship between university revenues and their volume of publications and citations, sweeping away some conceptions on university rankings. The study is published on PlosOne. To help them in their research, there was RISIS ETER dataset.
 
SIPER, WORLDWIDE POLICY EVALUATION DATABASE
 
Available on-line, from autumn 2019, the public version of SIPER (Science and Innovation Policy Evaluation Repository), a rich and unique database of science and innovation policy evaluations worldwide, and one of core dataset of RISIS project.        “The main goal of this database is to bring together all evaluation reports in the field of Science and Innovation policy, in order to make them accessible for policy-maker and analysts”, said Jakob Edler, director of Fraunhofer ISI.
 
RISIS Research Topics
 
 
CWTS, CORE DATASET ON PUBLICATIONS
 
Publications, daily bread of researchers. To study, consult, or share information, publication databases are populated every single day. And what about RISIS core dataset on publications?
The dataset is called CWTS publication, and previously it was referred to as Leiden Ranking dataset" said Ed Noyons, senior researcher at the Leiden University based Centre for Science & Technology Studies (CWTS) and RISIS project leader within CWTS.
 
EUPRO, A WHERE TO STUDY R&D PROJECTS
 
EUPRO is the first systematic and standardized database to investigate project based R&D collaboration networks in Europe”, said Thomas Scherngell, senior scientist at the AIT Center for Innovation Systems & Policy, and coordinator of the central access manager to RISIS datasets.
EUPRO, in fact, is a core RISIS dataset providing cleaned and complete information both on R&D projects and on participants over long time periods.
 
Forthcoming EVENTS
 
 
RISIS WILL HAVE A PLACE IN ESOF2020
 
RISIS will take part in Euro Science Open Forum (ESOF)2020, with a 90 minutes interactive round table aiming to discuss recent changes in knowledge production, and how they are likely to be empowered by using a research infrastructure. We have imagined an interactive session, to get all participants close to RISIS project...
 
RISIS WEEK, TIME TO STUDY AND PLAN
 
The second year of RISIS is upon us. It is time for the researchers of the STI community who are part of it to draw conclusions, reflect on the results achieved and plan the next actions, For a week, from 27 to 30 January 2020, ISI-Fraunhofer of Karlsruhe will host all 18 RISIS project partners, to discuss and study all together.
 
The final agenda is available here
 
Stakeholder engagement
 
 
FAST GROWING MID-SIZED FIRMS IN EUROPE
 
The first Policymakers’ Session took place on October 24th 2019 and was hosted by Clora (Club des Organismes de Recherche Associés), in Brussels. The meeting, titled “Fast growing mid-sized firms in Europe. Evidence from the RISIS-Cheetah database” has explored European mid-size firms from RISIS Cheetah data. 
 
KNOWMAK, INTERFACE TO RISIS DATA
 
On 19th December 2019, the Club of associated research organisations (Clora) of Brussels hosted the second policymakers’ Session of RISIS project. During the session, Benedetto Lepori, from Università della Svizzera Italiana and Thomas Scherngell, from Austrian Institute of Technology, presented the RISIS-KNOWMAK tool as an interface to RISIS integrated data.
