European Commission and DG Research & Innovation Communications announced yesterday the launch of the Horizon 2020 Dashboard on the Participant Portal. This novel view on Horizon 2020 implementation data provides powerful analytical functions, with new opportunities for programme reporting, impact analysis, preparing feedback to policy making and decision making on future priorities. All data can be viewed and analysed in aggregated form but also detailed views on individual calls, topics, countries, organisation types etc. are possible, down to the level of individual projects and beneficiaries (including links to the individual project pages on CORDIS).
DSCIM – 1st Doctoral Students Conference on Innovation Management, was held in October 4-6 2017 in Novi Sad, Serbia, bringing together students from different countries and from different perspectives, who do their doctoral research in this exciting field. This event connected these students with practitioners and industry, so that a synergy effect can be made to spark further collaborations.
The Regional Innovation Scoreboard (RIS) is a regional extension of the European Innovation Scoreboard, assessing the innovation performance of European regions on a limited number of indicators. The RIS 2017 covers 220 regions across 22 EU countries, Norway, Serbia, and Switzerland. In addition, Cyprus, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, and Malta are included at country level.
Switzerland, Sweden, the Netherlands, the USA and the UK are the world’s most- innovative countries, while a group of nations including India, Kenya, and Viet Nam are outperforming their development- level peers, according to the Global Innovation Index 2017 coauthored by Cornell University, INSEAD and the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO). The Global Innovation Index provides detailed metrics about the innovation performance of 127 countries and economies around the world. Its 81 indicators explore a broad vision of innovation, including political environment, education, infrastructure and business sophistication.
The Social Innovation Index 2016, created by the Economist Intelligence Unit (EIU), measures the capacity for social innovation across 45 countries–G20 and OECD nations, together with select others to illustrate some notable trends in developing economies.
The R&I Regional Viewer is a new tool developped by the Stairway to Excellence (S2E)team that visualizes and compare Research & Innovation investments under different funding channels and EU programmes across EU Regions.
The Global Innovation Index ranks the innovation performance of 128 countries and economies around the world, based on 82 indicators. Switzerland, Sweden, the United Kingdom, the United States of America, Finland and Singapore lead the 2016 rankings. Among the GII 2016 leaders, four economies — Japan, the U.S., the UK, and Germany— stand out in “innovation quality,” a top-level indicator that looks at the caliber of universities, number of scientific publications and international patent filings.
