Maquinària per al sector de l’alimentació a Catalunya - Píndola sectorial (Novembre 2021)

Les empreses dedicades a la maquinària per al sector de l’alimentació estan influïdes directament per les grans tendències del sector. És el cas de l’increment dels aliments ecològics, la creació de proteïnes alternatives, els nous sistemes de producció o l’auge de l’alimentació com a medicament. Aquestes són algunes de les tendències que faran evolucionar el sector a nivell tecnològic. De fet, s’estima que les vendes de robots industrials al sector de l’alimentació i les begudes l’any 2022 representarà el 3% del total. A Catalunya hi ha 280 empreses que facturen més de 1.100 milions d’euros dedicades a l'àmbit de la maquinària per al sector de l’alimentació, un àmbit clarament internacionalitzat.

She figures 2021 - Gender in research and innovation: statistics and indicators

Equality between women and men is one of the EU’s founding values. Since the European Commission’s ERA Communication of 2012, gender equality in research and innovation (R&I) as a priority has been strengthened progressively. The She Figures 2021 publication uses the latest available statistics to monitor the state of gender equality R&I across Europe and beyond, through providing comparable data and analysis for approximately 88 indicators. The data follow the ‘chronological journey’ of women from graduating from doctoral studies to participating in the labour market and acquiring decision-making roles, while exploring differences in women’s and men’s working conditions and research and innovation output.

Towards a reform of the research assessment system - Scoping report

Reforming research assessment is increasingly considered a priority to ensure the quality, performance and impact of research. Reform, however, requires cultural and systemic changes which are proving to be very complex and slow to implement. During the period March-November 2021, the European Commission consulted European stakeholders on how to facilitate and speed up changes. This scoping report presents the findings from the consultation, identifies the goals that should be pursued with a reform of research assessment, and proposes a coordinated approach based on principles and actions that could be agreed upon by a coalition of research funding and research performing organisations committed to implement changes.

U-Multirank Gender Monitor 2021

Analysis of the female to male ratio within the higher education ladder.  While women in total count for half or more of bachelor’s (BA) and master’s (MA) students, their share is smaller among PhD students (48%), academic staff (44%) and professors (28%). According to U-Multirank data this pattern is very much the same among EU and non-EU institutions. Findings from the U-Multirank data show that women are particularly underrepresented in research intense universities.

Implementing smart specialisation strategies: Analysis of the role of regional strategies in national innovation strategies

The report analyses the progress of Member States in the implementation of national and regional smart specialisation strategies (RIS3) in 2017 through an assessment of policy developments, progress in implementation of the different strategies, monitoring mechanisms and observed impacts. Using publicly available data as well as an expert survey, the analysis shows that in most countries RIS3 processes have been conducted at both national and regional levels. The use of thematic priorities for research and innovation, engaging stakeholders and opening up to bottom-up initiatives often implied a radical change to previous policymaking practices.

Measuring the impact of urban innovation districts

Despite their significant impact on social and economic development, innovation districts are facing challenges due to inadequacy of policies in terms of horizontal and vertical coordination or due to the lack of integrative policy approach. Strategic and targeted policy support leads to the acceleration of the growth of innovation districts, impacting the development of cities in general. To reach the potential of innovation districts in benefiting their local communities and in enabling greater collaboration, in creating jobs, and in promoting regional competitiveness, it is important to facilitate the positive externalities created by innovation districts through targeted policies.

Corporate effective tax rates for R&D - The case of expenditure-based R&D tax incentives

R&D tax incentives have become a widely used policy tool to promote business R&D. How do they shape firms’ incentives to invest in R&D? This paper contributes a methodology to construct forward-looking effective tax rates for an R&D investment that reflect the value of expenditure-based R&D tax incentives. The new OECD estimates cover 48 countries and consider the case of large profitable firms, accounting for the bulk of R&D in most economies. The results provide new insights into the generosity of R&D tax incentives from the perspective of firms that decide on whether or where to invest in R&D (extensive margin) and the level (intensive margin) of R&D investment. The generosity of the favourable tax treatment of R&D is shown to vary at the intensive and extensive margins, highlighting differences in countries’ strategies to support R&D through the tax system.

Métricas en innovación - Guía de recomendaciones para el reporte de los esfuerzos económicos en innovación

La OCDE ha desarrollado una serie de guías para medir las actividades de ciencia, tecnología e innovación que han sido la base para la recogida de datos y el desarrollo de estadísticas armonizadas a nivel internacional. Sin embargo, pese a los esfuerzos para actualizar y mejorar estas métricas, muchas empresas tienen todavía dificultades para identificar y medir las actividades de innovación que realizan. Esto provoca un desfase entre los datos recogidos en las estadísticas oficiales y la verdadera actividad innovadora del tejido empresarial. Conscientes de esta situación se creó en el seno de Cotec el Grupo de Trabajo sobre Métricas en innovación, con el objetivo de ofrecer un conjunto de recomendaciones a las organizaciones españolas que sirvieran de guía en el proceso de identificar y medir de forma razonablemente exhaustiva sus esfuerzos en innovación.

Guidelines for foresight-based policy analysis

Policy analysis examines and assesses problems to determine possible courses for policy action (policy options). In highly complex or controversial contexts, evidence-based policy options might not be socially acceptable. Here, policy analysis can benefit from a foresight-based approach, which helps investigate the issue holistically and assess considered evidence-based policy options against societal concerns. This is especially important in a parliamentary setting, as it enables analysts to consider stakeholder views and geographical concerns/differences when assessing policy options. This manual establishes the methodology for the foresight process and foresight-informed policy analysis.

Knowledge co-creation in the 21st century: A cross-country experience-based policy report

The importance of knowledge co-creation – the joint production of innovation between industry, research and possibly other stakeholders, such as civil society – has been increasingly acknowledged. This paper builds on 13 cross-country case studies and co-creation experiences during the COVID-19 pandemic to characterise the diversity of knowledge co-creation initiatives and identify lessons for policy. The paper identifies a strong rationale for policy to support knowledge co-creation because the benefits of successful co-creation initiatives outweigh the initial co-ordination costs. Moreover, knowledge co-creation initiatives can contribute to democratising innovation.

The scientific, technological and societal conditions for the end of the COVID-19 crisis

COVID-19 has led to a global public health crisis and changed the course of lives for billions with ensuing social and economic damage. The study used the Dynamic Argumentative Delphi method to explore experts’ views on what Europe may look like in 2023, in domains relating to medicine, public health, and socio-economic conditions. Based on the experts’ responses, the points of consensus and the areas of diverging opinions, the study developed five scenarios of exit from the crisis in 2023, associated with the relative success of efforts to develop immunity and with lessons learned as a result of those efforts. The report draws some conclusions for EU R&I policy, but together with its data annex, it can support strategic discussions across many different policy fields.

Reducing the precarity of academic research careers

This report analyses academic research careers, with a focus on the “research precariat”, defined as postdoctoral researchers holding fixed-term positions without permanent or continuous employment prospects. It identifies policies and practices that aim to improve researchers’ well-being, develop more diverse, equitable and inclusive research systems, attract and retain the best talent in academia, and ultimately improve the quality of science. The report presents a conceptual framework and synthesis of available data and policy information. It draws on a survey of OECD countries that included country notes and interviews with policy officials, funders, representatives of research performing organisations and researchers. It offers recommendations and a set of policy options to improve working conditions and professional development, better link funding to human resource policies, make governance more inclusive, promote equal opportunities and diversity, improve human resource management, promote inter-sectoral and international mobility, and develop the evidence base on research careers.

Quantitative indicators for high-risk/high-reward research

This paper describes the key characteristics of high-risk/high-reward research (HRHR), which has gained considerable interest from policy makers as a way to promote the development of new, ‘out-of-the-box’ ideas. It identifies three dimensions that are accentuated in HRHR research: higher levels of basicness, generality and novelty. These knowledge characteristics are commonly associated with market failure and research that requires public investment because it has large spill-overs, long time horizons and high levels of uncertainty. This is illustrated with examples of specific discoveries embedding each knowledge characteristic and the application of appropriate quantitative measures. The paper concludes with the computation and demonstration of an indicator of novelty that may be particularly well suited for the monitoring and evaluation of HRHR research policies.

Effective policies to foster high-risk/high-reward research

This report analyses policies and research funding mechanisms designed to foster high-risk high-reward (HRHR) research, and explores promising practices for fostering HRHR research in a variety of contexts. The underlying concern is that failure to encourage and support research on risky, ‘out-of-the-box’ ideas may jeopardise a country’s longer-term ability to compete economically, harness science for solving national and global challenges, and contribute to the progress of science as a whole. The analysis in this paper is primarily based on a survey of individual HRHR research funding schemes in different countries, complemented by targeted interviews. This survey was supplemented by an analysis of HRHR research-oriented programmes and by the feedback from an international workshop that included all relevant stakeholders.

Technology transfer and commercialisation for the European Green Deal

The rapid deployment of green technologies will be vital to put the EU on a path to meeting the European Green Deal objectives. Many green technologies with a great potential to contribute to the EU’s green transition are currently being developed in research laboratories across the EU. How can we ensure that these novel technologies find the right conditions to mature and become widespread in the EU? What are the main barriers in the transfer of green technologies from the research organisations to the market? And what could facilitate the rapid commercialisation of green technologies? This report on technology transfer and commercialisation for the European Green Deal sets out to answer these questions.

Genomic and biobank collaborative platforms hold significant promise for the development of new discoveries and therapies. This paper explores the complex technical, legal and business challenges arising from genomics and biobanks, and brings together ideas and best practices from major national and international platforms, and from a diverse range of experts. The global sharing of biological samples and genomic data has been critical for accelerating our understanding of the biology and spread of COVID-19, and for the development of vaccines and diagnostics. Although some of the policy challenges in the field are well known, they have been reconfigured by the digitalisation of health innovation combined with the increasing complexity and volume of data, the push for global collaboration, and the growing awareness of ethical, legal, and social implications.

Diagnostics for Better Health: Considerations for Global Implementation

Diagnostics are essential to the healthcare system. They are the cornerstone of precision medicine, enabling the customization of medical decisions and treatments. They predict susceptibility to disease, provide diagnoses and determine responsiveness to therapy. High-quality diagnostic technologies are available for major diseases and injuries in most developed countries but are not accessible, affordable or designed for application in many low- and middle-income countries (LMICs). This report considers the barriers and enablers of the implementation, adoption and effectiveness of diagnostics. It offers possible solutions for application in LMICs, and in industrialized countries. The report aims to serve as an educational tool for health professionals, entrepreneurs, policy-makers and the general public on the ways in which diagnostics and their practices can be leveraged for better global human health.

Science, technology and innovation in the time of COVID-19

Science, technology and innovation (STI) have played a key role in responding to the COVID-19 pandemic and the unprecedented socio-economic crisis it has triggered. This paper explores how the pandemic affected STI in 2020, including how STI was mobilised to provide vaccines, treatments and innovative (often digital) solutions to address “social distancing”. The paper also reviews the quick and agile STI policy responses implemented across countries to stimulate research and innovation activities to find solutions to the pandemic. Moreover, the paper covers STI policies that targeted universities, research centres, innovative businesses and entrepreneurs most affected by the crisis. It also raises key debates on the effectiveness of such policies. Follow-up work will leverage more and better data to improve this early assessment of the impacts of the crisis and STI policy responses.

The design and implementation of mission-oriented innovation policies: A new systemic policy approach to address societal challenges

This paper analyses ‘mission-oriented innovation policies’ (MOIPs), a new type of systemic intervention that a growing number of countries has implemented in order to tackle mounting societal challenges. These policies aim to alleviate some of the most prevalent weaknesses within many national systems of innovation, notably the lack of holistic strategic orientation and policy co-ordination, and fragmented policy mixes. This paper leverages a dedicated analytical framework to systematically explore the challenges and opportunities that these policies present at initiative and country levels. In doing so, it provides a better understanding of the different ways in which governments design, fund and coordinate MOIPs, and contributes to broadening the range of options available to either improve or initiate this policy approach.

Study on equity investments in Europe: Mind the gap

Having a well-functioning risk capital market is crucial for innovation, economic growth and investments. However, the need for external risk capital very much depends on the concrete business model. Credit plus retained earnings will be sufficient to address the investment needs of many SMEs and small mid-caps. This secures the creditor a predictable repayment profile and return, whereas the borrower gets to keep the entire upside from the investment. With equity finance on the other hand, the investors are not guaranteed any return, but instead they buy into the potential future earnings of the company. As such, equity finance is well-suited for the few high-risk, high-return profile companies, which are ineligible for credit. This typically characterises innovative companies where high scale-up is possible. Such companies are often found within ICT, life science and technology sectors.

The Science of Citizen Science

This open access book discusses how the involvement of citizens into scientific endeavors is expected to contribute to solve the big challenges of our time, such as climate change and the loss of biodiversity, growing inequalities within and between societies, and the sustainability turn. The field of citizen science has been growing in recent decades. Many different stakeholders from scientists to citizens and from policy makers to environmental organisations have been involved in its practice. In addition, many scientists also study citizen science as a research approach and as a way for science and society to interact and collaborate. This book provides a representation of the practices as well as scientific and societal outcomes in different disciplines. It reflects the contribution of citizen science to societal development, education, or innovation and provides and overview of the field of actors as well as on tools and guidelines. It serves as an introduction for anyone who wants to get involved in and learn more about the science of citizen science.

OECD Science, Technology and Innovation Outlook 2021 - Times of Crisis and Opportunity

In immediate responses to the COVID-19 crisis, science and innovation are playing essential roles in providing a better scientific understanding of the virus, as well as in the development of vaccines, treatments and diagnostics. Both the public and private sectors have poured billions of dollars into these efforts, accompanied by unprecedented levels of global cooperation. However, the economic crisis that is currently unfolding is expected to severely curtail research and innovation expenditures in firms, while debt-laden governments will face multiple, competing demands for financial support. These developments threaten to cause long-term damage to innovation systems at a time when science and innovation are most needed to deal with the climate emergency, meet the Sustainable Development Goals, and accelerate the digital transformation. Governments will need to take measures to protect their innovation systems as part of their stimulus and recovery packages, but should also use these as opportunities for reforms. In particular, science, technology and innovation (STI) policy should shift towards supporting a more ambitious agenda of system transformation that promotes a managed transition to more sustainable, equitable and resilient futures.

The geography of R&I and productivity: Regional disparities and dynamics

The fast pace of innovation poses new challenges on research and innovation systems of many less developed regions. These are often not sufficiently oriented towards knowledge intensive and other sectors that contribute to improvements in productivity. Despite a general improvement in the quality of R&I systems in these regions in the last years, their overall performance remains low and more efforts are needed to further boost quality and their effectiveness in translating R&I into positive economic returns. This working paper looks in its first section at regional disparities and dynamics as regards productivity growth. The second section examines performance and progress of research and innovation systems at a regional level, based on key parameters such as R&D spending, scientific publications and patents. Finally the links between R&I performance and economic outcomes, such as productivity growth, are analysed.

Collaborative platforms for innovation in advanced materials

Advanced materials hold significant potential to create better products and production processes. Yet realising their promise remains challenging: historically it has taken 15 to 20 years from discovery to deployment of new materials in products. Consequently, governments have been creating shared digital and physical infrastructures – “collaborative platforms” – to pool and manage global data, drive the development of nascent industries, and create hubs of interdisciplinary research, development and training. Based on evidence from 12 case studies, this report characterises governance mechanisms of collaborative platforms for advanced materials such as terms of funding, access, and IP policy and explores how they can create different kinds of value. Technology convergence, the engagement of society and digitalisation are identified as key trends. The study describes conditions under which collaborative platforms can align and power value chains, foster standards, catalyse innovation ecosystems and build education, skills and social capital.

Making R&I transformative: Evidence in support of the new European Research Area Communication

In order to address today’s multiple challenges, ERA needs to accelerate the transitions, strengthen resilience to future crises, while sustaining its competitiveness. High quality results require sufficient levels of investments in R&I, in particular from Member States and the private sector. Lagging innovation ecosystems can hardly improve without intense cooperation between academia and industry accompanied by better access to excellent facilities and infrastructures. While overall the EU is already leading in research and scientific excellence, it needs to step up its support to breakthrough market-driven innovations that will underpin green digital Europe and will boost growth, job creation and competitiveness. Only an excellent and impactful R&I system, will offer attractive career paths for researchers, mutually favourable circulation of talents within the EU and increase attractiveness of the EU abroad.

Firstly, we have a limited understanding of the mechanisms of knowledge transfer and science-industry relationships; secondly, we have not advanced much in understanding how policies (and instruments) affect knowledge transfer and science-industry relationships; and thirdly, we still do not fully comprehend how different instruments accumulate or interact into “policy mixes” and to what extent there are synergies or negative effects among them.

La genòmica a Catalunya - Píndola tecnològica (Novembre 2020)

La genòmica és una disciplina científica que es dedica al mapeig genètic, la seqüenciació d’ADN i l’anàlisi del genoma. Permet diagnosticar malalties, crear medicina i nutrició personalitzades o produir aliments funcionals, entre moltes d’altres coses com l’edició genòmica (CRISPR) o la bioinformàtica. Un sector basat en el coneixement, que ja tenia una tendència creixent i que la pandèmia de la covid-19 no ha fet més que multiplicar el seu potencial. Una cinquantena d’empreses operen a Catalunya en aquest sector, que compta al seu voltant amb un potent ecosistema de centres de recerca i hospitals de referència.

Public-Private Partnerships for Science and Technology Parks - Utilising PPPs and related models for the development and operation of STPs and innovation districts: insight into case studies and good practices

Public–Private Partnerships (PPPs) have been widely applied as credible models for the development and operation of public infrastructure. Through private sector involvement, the public sector manages to better control costs and debt levels and, in return, offers to the private sector access to new long-term investment opportunities. For PPPs to be successful, proper identification and management of risks are pivotal and reward mechanisms need to be carefully constructed to allow both sides to play to their respective strengths, benefit from the deal and extract value from it. This study intends to answer two key questions: How to apply PPPs and similar partnering modalities (e.g. concessionary models) to the development and sustainable operation of Science and Technology Parks (STPs) and Innovation Districts? What are the key features of currently existing PPPs for STPs and Innovation Districts?

Researchers at Risk: Mapping Europe’s Response

Granting refuge and academic freedom to scholars and students, who had to flee persecution and wars in their home countries and regions, is an eminent function of universities. Over the past decades, the numbers of academics suffering from persecution world-wide has grown and applications for assistance to support organisations clearly exceed the number of placement positions and funding available. This report presents the findings of a mapping conducted in the framework of the “Initiative to Support, Promote and Integrate Researchers at Risk in Europe” (Inspireurope). Its aim is to identify the support available to researchers at risk in Europe, as well as gaps and opportunities for future support. The report provides insight into the experiences of researchers at risk, their hosts and support organisations. It also discusses national- and European-level support measures.

Resultados del cuestionario sobre el impacto del confinamiento en el personal investigador

El confinamiento durante los meses de marzo a junio de 2020 debido a la covid-19 ha hecho saltar las alarmas entre la comunidad investigadora por los posibles impactos de género negativos que la situación podría acarrear, especialmente en la carrera de las investigadoras con menores, mayores y/o dependientes a cargo. Como ha sido ampliamente documentada en los últimos años, una de las mayores brechas de género es la de cuidados en las familias , no sólo en el ámbito de la investigación. Ante las primeras evidencias a nivel internacional de un menor número de publicaciones de mujeres como primeras autoras de artículos científicos durante el confinamiento, desde la Unidad de Mujeres y Ciencia (UMyC) con la colaboración de la Fundación Española para la Ciencia y la Tecnología (FECYT) se lanzó en julio de 2020 un cuestionario online de 30 preguntas dirigido al personal investigador de los Organismos Públicos de Investigación (OPIs) del MCIN. El objetivo era identificar y explorar, con perspectiva de género, posibles impactos desiguales derivados de la situación de confinamiento. El fin último es poder ayudar a la implementación de medidas y recomendaciones tanto de carácter preventivo como correctivo.

Disruption by technology: Impacts on politics, economics and society

Technological development has long been considered as a disruptive force, provoking change at many levels, from the routine daily activities of individuals to dramatic competition between global superpowers. This analysis examines disruption caused by technologies in a series of key areas of politics, economics and society. It focuses on seven fields: the economic system, the military and defence, democratic debates and the 'infosphere', social norms, values and identities, international relations, and the legal and regulatory system. It also presents surveillance as an example of how technological disruption across these domains can converge to propel other phenomena. The key disruptive force of 2020 is non-technological, namely coronavirus. The pandemic is used here as an opportunity to examine how technological disruption interacts with other forms of disruption.

Moving the frontier of macroeconomic modelling of research and innovation policy

The aim of the report is double. First, it aims to identify those characteristics and properties of research and innovation (R&I) that should ideally be included in macro-models, i.e., those that would help to understand the behaviour of innovation and to produce sound evaluations of R&I policies. Second, it aims at identifying the main R&I policies used in practice, those that macro-models need to include in order to produce well-founded assessments. The report closes with some conclusions and recommendations on how to move forward the medium-long term agenda on the development and use of macroeconomic models to inform and advise research and innovation policy making.

Mapping 21st century science/technology linkages: Has science become more important in recent technological development?

Understanding how progress in science is connected to technological development is crucial to get a better handle of the drivers and policy levers that can foster science-based innovation in a rapidly changing innovation ecosystems and knowledgeintensive economies. One area of rising interest is understanding in more detail the role of basic and applied scientific research in driving new emerging
technologies and related technological innovations. Science is an important source of novel ideas, tools, materials and prototypes in some areas of advanced technological development. The key question however is whether or not science has become increasingly important in recent technological developments. To address this question, in a broad systematic fashion, one needs to establish a stable frame of reference, appropriate empirical information, and a sufficiently long time-window.

Optimising the operation and use of national research infrastructures

This report is the outcome of a joint activity between Science Europe and the OECD, and presents a generic framework for improving the use and operation of national research infrastructures (RIs), which play a key role in enabling and developing research in all scientific domains and represent an increasingly large share of research investment. It includes two guiding models: one for portfolio management and one for user-base optimisation. These identify the key principles of an effective national RI portfolio management system and the factors that RI managers should consider with regards to optimising the user base of national RIs. Both guiding models account for the diversity of national systems and RI operation approaches. The report also contains a series of more generic policy recommendations and suggested actions for RI portfolio managers and RI managers.

How to set up a mentoring programme for researchers in academia interested in non-academic jobs

During 2019, 5 partners of the project EURAXESS TOP IV “Open EURAXESS – To strengthen the effectiveness and optimize the services of all partners in an innovative and open EURAXESS network” (funded from the Research and Innovation framework Horizon 2020 of the European Union under grant agreement 786133) run a mentoring programme pilot that put in touch young researchers with highly skilled professionals somehow related to R&D&I but not doing research in academia. The aim of the programme was to test whether such a mentoring programme could support young researchers have a better view of their career options inside and outside academia, as well as to provide recommendations for EURAXESS staff. This document reflects on the reasons for such a programme and the lessons learnt during its design, implementation and evaluation. It intends to be a useful toolkit for those institutions wanting to deploy similar programmes for their early stage researchers.

This report looks at the human resource requirements for data-intensive science, focusing primarily on research conducted in the public sector, and the related challenges and training needs. Digitalisation is, to some extent, being driven by science, while simultaneously affecting all aspects of scientific practice. Open science, including access to data, is being widely promoted, and investment in cyber-infrastructures and digital platforms is increasing; but inadequate attention has been given to the skills that researchers and research support professionals need to fully exploit these tools. The COVID-19 pandemic, which struck as this report was being finalised, has underscored the critical importance of data-intensive science and the need for strategic approaches to strengthening the digital capacity and skills of the scientific enterprise as a whole. The report includes policy recommendations for various actors and good practice examples to support these recommendations.

Funding women entrepreneurs: How to empower growth

Financial and policy measures are needed to improve access-to-finance conditions for women-led companies. EIB’s InnovFin Advisory assesses the access-to-risk-capital conditions for women-driven companies in Europe in comparison to mainly the US. While women-led companies still account for a small portion of deal flow and overall volume invested, the rate of growth has increased. Nevertheless, structural inequalities and persistent biases hinder the transition to a better functioning funding environment. The study puts forth a number of innovation finance and policy related recommendations. Restarting the EU economy after the coronavirus pandemic provides a unique opportunity to include the gender dimension.

2021 QS University Rankings: Top 50 Under 50

First published in 2012, the QS Top 50 Under 50 ranks the best universities in the world which are under 50 years old, allowing some of the world's top young universities to shine. Since 2015, it has tripled its range to include the Next 100 Under 50. Unlike other university rankings, the Top 50 Under 50 and the Next 100 Under 50 see a vast amount of change each year, as universities drop out of the list after they pass the 50-year marker. So, if you can't find an institution in this year's list, it might be because it's now older than 50 years.

EIDES 2020 - The European Index of Digital Entrepreneurship Systems

Digitalisation is shaping and even transforming both the location and nature of entrepreneurial opportunities in the economy and the practices to pursue them. In order to help maximise the productivity potential of the digitally enhanced entrepreneurial dynamic in countries, policymakers need to understand the state of their countries' digital framework conditions for entrepreneurship. The European Index of Digital Entrepreneurship Systems (EIDES) addresses this gap by monitoring digital framework and systemic conditions for entrepreneurial stand-up, start-up, and scale-up in the EU27 countries and the United Kingdom. This is the third edition of the EIDES. It provides an assessment of framework conditions for digital start-ups and scale-ups in European countries in 2020 and analyses their evolution in the period between 2018 and 2020.

Addressing societal challenges using transdisciplinary research

This report looks at how transdisciplinary research, which combines knowledge from different scientific disciplines with that of public and private sector stakeholders and citizens, can be used to address complex societal challenges. This includes developing effective responses in acute crises, such as the COVID-19 pandemic, as well as longer-term solutions for sustainability development. In a series of 28 case studies, each of which is briefly summarised in the report, it identifies the key obstacles to effectively implementing transdisciplinary research. Many of these are embedded in the way that research systems are structured and managed and they are amenable to policy intervention. Examples of how various actors, including funding agencies and universities are adapting to better accommodate the requirements of transdisciplinary research are included in the report and related policy actions are ascribed for these actors.

Género y ciencia frente al coronavirus

Desde que la crisis por la enfermedad Covid-19 hiciera aparición en Europa son enormes los esfuerzos y recursos dedicados desde diferentes áreas del conocimiento a analizar y entender las causas y consecuencias de esta nueva enfermedad, especialmente en la salud, para su cura; pero también en la economía y en la sociedad, por el impacto, de dimensiones todavía incalculables, de la actual situación en dichos ámbitos. La pandemia y el consecuente confinamiento, han revelado también aspectos de nuestro sistema de ciencia e innovación en términos de (des)igualdad de género, muchos de los cuales ya se venían poniendo de manifiesto tanto por la literatura especializada como en las redes nacionales y europeas de género y ciencia. Haciéndose eco de todo ese conocimiento y aprovechando el momento de visibilidad que han cobrado las brechas de género en ciencia, la Unidad de Mujeres y Ciencia del Gabinete del Ministro de Ciencia e Innovación ha elaborado la presente nota sobre género y ciencia en el contexto de la Covid-19, con recomendaciones para futuras decisiones en I+D+i desde una perspectiva de género.

European entrepreneurial regions - Regional ecosystem mapping: region of Catalonia

The start-up ecosystem of Catalonia is considered as one of the most dynamically evolving European ecosystems over the last 5 years. Catalonia is ranked as the 3rd favourite start-up hub for business founders and 20% of European founders create their start-ups in Barcelona and the 4th leading European city for capital investment in start-ups1. Catalonia is home of more than 1,300 start-ups that have created 13,800 jobs in leading industrial areas such as Industry 4.0, life sciences and mobile & software and in the leading sectors such as food industry (2,459), chemical industry (1,164) and motor vehicles (3,001). Regarding its maturity, the Catalan start-up ecosystem has considerably developed in recent years, considering the increased number of local and international founders, local tech start-ups and venture capital investors, accelerators and incubators.

Inclusiveness and R&I

The aftermath of the last economic crisis has revealed that Europe not only needs to continue tackling its economic challenges, but it should also ensure that everybody reaps the benefits of progress. Increased inequality as well as underperforming productivity and growth dynamics are now seen as the two main challenges of Europe’s political agenda. While Europe is a more equal place to live overall, when broad indices compare its performance to that of other countries, income inequality has increased. The digital transformation of our economy and society is a root cause of the above trends. Digital innovation is fast and complex. The benefits from innovation therefore do not accrue to all people at the same time and at the same rate. This paper looks at the divergences that started to become apparent across four dimensions: countries, regions, firms and people. It presents available evidence and explores some of the emerging implications for R&I policy.

Investing in and for the sustainable development goals

While R&I investments are key drivers for growth and jobs, their role as key enablers to accelerate the transition towards an environmentally, socially and economically sustainable Europe is also widely recognised. Because of the scope, scale and urgency of the societal challenges facing Europe, policy is called to pay increased attention not just to the volume of R&D investments, but also to the overall direction of these investments. This note looks at the current R&D investment trends, the importance of tax incentives, and whether the national governments are steering their budgets towards addressing SDGs.

The research and innovation divide in the EU and its economic consequences

This report looks at the economic consequences of the R&I divide across EU regions and highlights the policy challenge they represent. It reviews the theoretical factors behind current levels of territorial polarisation, maps the current state of this divide and presents an econometric approach to identifying the effects. The core of the argument is that R&D investment alone does not trigger the same returns on investment everywhere because of several factors. These are linked to the cost of technology accessibility in different places, the distance to the technological frontier, positive externalities from larger and denser regions, the quality of local institutions, and hampered knowledge sharing. Many of these factors disadvantage the less-developed regions in their efforts to broaden their innovation capacities with the aim of unleashing greater economic activity and growth.

In practice, KT indicators that have been adopted internationally are diverse and range far wider than the traditional measures of patenting, licensing, number of spin–offs and revenue. In many countries they extend over different channels of industry engagement e.g. including research collaboration and often move beyond industry to encompass other “non–academic” users and engagers.

The entrepreneurial employee in the public and private sector - What, Why, How

Entrepreneurship impacts societies in profound ways. Entrepreneurs can disrupt entire global markets with their new firms and offerings. This sometimes puts even the largest corporations out of business in a remarkably short time. Some famous examples of firms that failed to renew themselves in a rapidly changing market are mobile phone manufacturer Nokia, photographic film maker Kodak, video-rental chain Blockbuster, toy vendor Toys R Us and photocopy machine maker Xerox. Powerful business stories of creative destruction make great headlines in media. The destroyers of old ways of doing business are often pictured as charismatic, heroic entrepreneurs.

Identifying and measuring developments in artificial intelligence: Making the impossible possible

This paper identifies and measures developments in science, algorithms and technologies related to artificial intelligence (AI). Using information from scientific publications, open source software (OSS) and patents, it finds a marked increase in AI-related developments over recent years. Since 2015, AI-related publications have increased by 23% per year; from 2014 to 2018, AI-related OSS contributions grew at a rate three times greater than other OSS contributions; and AI-related inventions comprised, on average, more than 2.3% of IP5 patent families in 2017. China’s growing role in the AI space also emerges. The analysis relies on a three-pronged approach based on established bibliometric and patent-based methods, and machine learning (ML) implemented on purposely collected OSS data.

Charting the digital transformation of science: Findings from the 2018 OECD International Survey of Scientific Authors (ISSA2)

This paper presents the results of the 2018 OECD International Survey of Scientific Authors (ISSA2), a global online survey designed and implemented to measure the key features of the digital transformation of science. The paper explores the potential impacts of digitalisation based on a combination of different indicators on research impact and responses from nearly 12 000 authors across the world. The evidence shows that although digital activity is pervasive, the transformation is uneven across fields and sectors, and is influenced by factors such as norms, experience, skills and data availability. Overall, scientists appear to be optimistic about the potential of digitalisation, especially in relation to the efficiency of research and collaboration across national borders. This paper is also the first analysis to leverage a new OECD approach to data collection in priority science policy topics for which evidence might be scarce or insufficiently timely.

Data sharing: qué son y cómo se pueden compartir los datos de investigación. Manual de recomendación para gestores de la información

El uso compartido de datos, data sharing en inglés, es la acción de compartir con el resto de la comunidad científica el material sin procesar generado durante el curso de la investigación que sirve para extraer y validar resultados (Torres-Salinas, 2010). Actualmente, el data sharing se engloba dentro de la filosofía de acceso abierto, open access en inglés (en adelante, OA), entendiéndose el compartir datos como una práctica que favorece que la ciencia sea más abierta y accesible (European Commission, 2016). Desde esta perspectiva de OA, el datasharing promueve que los datos sin procesar puedan tener una “segunda vida” y se puedan utilizar más allá del fin para el que fueron generados en un principio. Estos usos pueden ir desde la reutilización de los datos para producir nuevos estudios, a servir como verificadores de resultados de investigación.

This report proposes an operational definition of artificial intelligence to be adopted in the context of AI Watch, the Commission knowledge service to monitor the development, uptake and impact of artificial intelligence for Europe. The definition, which will be used as a basis for the AI Watch monitoring activity, is established by means of a flexible scientific methodology that allows regular revision. The operational definition is constituted by a concise taxonomy and a list of keywords that characterise the core domains of the AI research field, and transversal topics such as applications of the former or ethical and philosophical considerations, in line with the wider monitoring objective of AI Watch. The AI taxonomy is designed to inform the AI landscape analysis and will expectedly detect AI applications in neighbour technological domains such as robotics (in a broader sense), neuroscience or internet of things.

The Public Funding Observatory Report 2019/20 offers the most up-to-date information on 34 higher education systems across Europe. Now in its 10th edition, the main report is divided into two sections: an analysis of long-term funding trends captured over a decade (2008-2018) and an overview of the latest public funding developments (2018-2019). In the decade-long analysis, three types of trends are defined: systems that have remained committed to investing in universities; those that cut funds to universities in the wake of the economic crisis and are recovering; and those that show continued decline in terms of resources allocated. EUA has been following the evolution of public funding to universities since 2008. The monitoring is conducted in close cooperation with EUA’s collective members, the national rectors’ conferences, which regularly provide data from their systems.

Science for Environment Policy: Eco-innovation in SMEs

There are more than 20 million SMEs in EU countries, compared to around 40,000 large companies (i.e. with more than 250 persons employed). Though the environmental footprints of individual firms may be relatively small, their collective impact is much more significant. For example, a 2010 study showed that SMEs are responsible for about 64% of the overall environmental impact of businesses in the EU. Until recently, policy-makers and practitioners have tended to focus on promoting pro-environmental practices and innovations in larger firms. As a result, there is considerable scope to reduce environmental impacts in Europe by promoting eco-innovation in the SME population.

The Digitalisation of Science, Technology and Innovation: Key Developments and Policies

This report examines digitalisation’s effects on science, technology and innovation and the associated consequences for policy. In varied and far-reaching ways, digital technologies are changing how scientists work, collaborate and publish. While examining these developments, this book also assesses the effects of digitalisation on longstanding policy themes, from access to publicly funded research data, to the diffusion of technology and its absorption by firms. New and emerging topics are also explored. These include the roles of artificial intelligence and blockchain in science and production, using digital technology to draw on the collective intelligence of the scientific community, advances in the digitalisation of biotechnology, and possible "dark sides" of digitalisation.

Women in science and technology 2018

In 2018, of almost 15 million scientists and engineers in the EU, 59% were men and 41% women. Men were particularly overrepresented in manufacturing (79% of scientists and engineers in manufacturing were male), while the gender ratio in the services sector was more balanced (54% male and 46% female). However, in four EU Member States, the majority of scientists and engineers were women: Lithuania (57% female), Bulgaria and Latvia (both 52%) and Denmark (51%). Less than one third of scientists and engineers were women Finland (29%), Hungary (30%), Luxembourg (31%) and Germany (33%).

Trends at the frontier in corporate R&D in the digital era: Facts, prospects and policies

Both technological change, especially the digital revolution, and globalisation are predicted to lead to “winner takes most” industries, dominated by a happy few superstar firms. As the importance of large fixed investments driving scale and scope advantages increase, and as network effects become more prominent, sectors will be increasingly concentrated in a small number of firms, leaving an increasingly unequal corporate landscape. This may have important implications for aggregate productivity trends, particularly if the “winners” are the biggest firms with highest productivity growth and innovative performance and the laggards increasingly less likely to produce productivity growth. This contribution examines how concentrated R&D spending is in few “winners”. It finds a high degree of concentration in R&D, much more than sales and employment. The analysis finds no evidence for increasing concentration in the global R&D landscape, only more recently in the digital services sectors, with in particular the top 1 percent of R&D spending firms in these sectors forging ahead. Incumbent R&D leaders slowly lose their positions to new R&D-leading firms. But overall, R&D leadership is persistent and turbulence is relatively modest. Digital services is the most turbulent high-tech sector. The US and China are more likely to produce new R&D leaders taking over top positions from incumbent R&D leaders. This poses difficult questions for Europe, which is at risk of losing out in terms of R&D leadership in more technologically advanced sectors.

Marie Skłodowska-Curie actions under the Seventh Framework Programme for Research and Technological Development: A taste of success

The Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions (MSCA) are a series of funding schemes that support the mobility and career development of researchers. During the European Commission’s Seventh Framework Programme for Research and Technological Development (FP7) (2007-2013), the MSCA received a budget of €4.5 billion and were managed by the Research Executive Agency (REA) of the European Commission. Approximately 50,000 researchers of 140 nationalities and 19,700 organisations from the public and private sectors received fellowships, making the MSCA one of the most ambitious and diverse initiatives of its kind in the world. This document provides an overview of the great success of the MSCA under FP7, including scientific breakthroughs (such as the discovery of the Higgs-Boson subatomic particle), a series of patents, Nobel prizes and other awards. It also highlights the excellent scientists and researchers who fostered extraordinary innovation, vital to combat critical challenges and contribute to economic growth. Today, thanks to its success, the MSCA are part of the current Horizon 2020 framework programme and the next programme Horizon Europe. In the future, it will maintain the main features of its predecessors, given its significant positive impact on researchers and institutions. All the successful projects featured in this publication show that Marie Skłodowska-Curie – the world’s most famous female researcher and still the only Nobel laureate in two different scientific disciplines – continues to be a role model and to inspire future generations of outstanding researchers.

Blue Bioeconomy Forum Highlights: Synthesis of the roadmap and a selection of viable and innovative projects

The European Commission defines Bioeconomy as: “the production of renewable biological resources and the conversion of these resources and waste streams into value added products, such as food, feed, bio-based products and bioenergy.” (European Commission, 2012). The addition of “blue” entails a focus on aquatic or marine environments, especially, on novel aquaculture applications, including non-food, food and feed. Within the scope of the Blue Bioeconomy Forum, the study does not cover “traditional” uses of biomass, such as fisheries and traditional aquaculture that are mainly aimed at food. Marine organisms that are covered include amongst others: microbes (e.g. bacteria, fungi), microalgae, macroalgae (seaweed), invertebrates (e.g. crustaceans, annelids, molluscs, porifera) and discards of fish and other marine organisms that show potential for the development of innovative and high value products as well as valorisation of co-products.

Crossdisciplinary research is essential if science is to properly address societal needs. In spite of several policy initiatives to foster such research across sectors, there is still a high level of compartmentalisation in the biosciences. The European Commission is preparing for a Missions based science and innovation strategy in which it will be important to consider how the goal of meaningful crossdisciplinarity can be achieved. This report aims to raise the question of crossdisciplinarity again, and to suggest specific actions to further the understanding, achievement and evaluation of crossdisciplinarity in the biosciences.

Tech Scaleup Spain – 2019 Report

One year later, the Spanish ecosystem still ranks 5th in Europe in terms of the number of scaleups, and 6th in the capital raised. And it still is the most performing ecosystem among the Southern European countries. One year later, Spain remains very far from the top countries in terms of capital invested. Investing $800M per year, while Germany, France, and The Netherlands pour around $4B, and Switzerland over $2B does not allow to close the gap. The gap has been widening. The data show that Spain (as most of the Southern and Eastern countries) suffers a chronic situation of relative undercapitalization compared to the other European regions.

The Status of Open Innovation in Europe: Corporate-Startup Collaboration - 2019 Report

Open innovation means making use of ideas from outside your own organisation. It means accepting that ‘not all the smart people work for you’. However, it does not mean delegating responsibility for innovation or being passive in the face of change. On the contrary, those firms which have embraced open innovation effectively have well-considered internal and external activities and mechanisms that are specifically intended to facilitate innovative collaboration with other organisations, including innovative startups. This report, produced by Mind the Bridge (MTB) and Nesta as part of the Startup Europe Partnership project, provides an overview of some of these activities.

The human-centred city: Opportunities for citizens through research and innovation

This High-Level Expert Group report provides a vision for European cities of the future and recommends how EU-funded research and innovation can assist cities in their transition towards a resilient, climate-neutral, smart, inclusive, prosperous and sustainable future. Across its four core chapters, ‘People’, ‘Place’, ‘Prosperity’ and ‘Resilience’, and its two cross-cutting ones on ‘Governance’ and ‘Measurement‘, the report emphasises the need for citizens to be involved in the conceptualisation, design and execution and dissemination of any research and innovation action. Such involvement will ensure a human-centred city transition that will provide equal opportunities for citizens and leave nobody behind. The report aims to trigger discussions among policy makers, EU institutions, the scientific community and society at large, and inspire strategic planning and investments within Horizon Europe and its dedicated Mission on ‘Climateneutral and Smart Cities’.

Intellectual Property and Artificial Intelligence: A literature review

Artificial intelligence has entered into the sphere of creativity and ingenuity. Recent headlines refer to paintings produced by machines, music performed or composed by algorithms or drugs discovered by computer programs. This paper discusses the possible implications of the development and adoption of this new technology in the intellectual property framework and presents the opinions expressed by practitioners and legal scholars in recent publications. The literature review, although not intended to be exhaustive, reveals a series of questions that call for further reflection. These concern the protection of artificial intelligence by intellectual property, the use of data to feed algorithms, the protection of the results generated by intelligent machines as well as the relationship between ethical requirements of transparency and explainability and the interests of rights holders.

Encuesta sobre innovación en las empresas - Año 2018

La Encuesta sobre innovación en las empresas tiene como principal objetivo, ofrecer información directa sobre el proceso de innovación en las empresas, elaborando indicadores que permitan conocer los distintos aspectos de este proceso (impacto económico, actividades innovadoras, coste,...). Este estudio, aparte de proporcionar una información rica y variada sobre el proceso de innovación, puede servir de marco base para diversos estudios específicos sobre otros aspectos relacionados con la ciencia y tecnología (como utilización de tecnología punta en la fabricación, pagos e ingresos tecnológicos, estudios sobre patentes, etc.). En la Encuesta de Innovación correspondiente al año 2018 se produce una ruptura de la serie debido al cambio metodológico de la nueva versión del Manual de Oslo. Por ese motivo, los datos no son comparables con los publicados correspondientes a años anteriores.

Study supporting the interim evaluation of the innovation principle - Final report

The Commission has recognised the importance of a more innovation-oriented EU acquis, gradually exploring the ways in which EU rules can support innovation. The innovation principle was introduced to ensure that whenever policy is developed, the impact on innovation is fully assessed. As further discussed in this Study, the exact contours of the innovation principle have been gradually shaped within the context of the EU better regulation agenda: the innovation principle has been given a more articulate and consistent role. This study presents an evaluation of the innovation principle so far, limited to two of its three components: i.e. the Research & Innovation Tool included in the Better Regulation Toolbox, and the innovation deals.

Research and innovation in low emission alternative energy for transport: An assessment based on the Transport Research and Innovation Monitoring and Information System (TRIMIS)

This report provides a comprehensive analysis of research and innovation in alternative fuels in selected European Union (EU) funded projects from 2007 onwards. It identifies relevant researched technologies by fuel type and their phase of development. The results show that liquefied petroleum gas technologies are fully developed while methane-based fuels are in the last phases of development. However, they have a limited overall environmental advantage over conventional fuels, since they are equally mostly based on fossil energy sources and might have issues related to pollutant emissions and leakage. Technologies for synthetic paraffinic fuels, and alcohols, esters and ethers are in earlier phases of development hinting to a steady shift to a more sustainable production. So far, road transport has the highest use of alternative fuels in the transport sector. Despite financial support from the EU, advances have yet to materialise suggesting EU transport decarbonisation policies should not expect a radical or sudden change, and therefore, transition periods are critical.<
