Research and innovation to drive the Green Deal (Brochure) - European Commission

The European Green Deal is a major contribution for the health of our planet and our people – and for our economy. In order for Europe to become a climate-neutral continent by 2050, this will require decarbonisation at a speed at least six times faster than anything achieved globally so far. Research and innovation will play a central role in accelerating the necessary transitions, deploying and demonstrating solutions, and engaging citizens in social innovation. Research and innovation will help drive and navigate the long-term systemic changes required to create a cleaner, greener, fairer society.

Reimagining Academic Career Assessment: Stories of innovation and change - European University Association (EUA)

This report and the accompanying online repository bring together and analyse case studies in responsible academic career assessment. Gathered by EUA, together with the San Francisco Declaration on Research Assessment (DORA) and Scholarly Publishing and Academic Resources Coalition (SPARC) Europe, the case studies serve as a source of inspiration for universities and other actors looking to improve their academic career assessment practices.

Advanced technologies for industry: Technological trends and policies - Executive Agency for Small and Medium-sized Enterprises (EASME). European Commission

The objective of this EU report is to provide an overview about the performance of the EU27 in Advanced Technologies and to give a snapshot of the policy landscape supporting the production and uptake of Advanced Technologies at EU, national and regional levels. Country performance in Advanced Technologies is presented based on patent, trade and investment data. The starting point of this analysis has been sixteen Advanced Technologies that are a priority for European industrial policy and that enable process, product and service innovation throughout the economy and hence foster industrial modernisation. Advanced Technologies are defined as recent or future technologies that are expected to substantially alter the business and social environment and include Advanced Materials, Advanced Manufacturing, Artificial Intelligence, Augmented and Virtual Reality, Big Data, Blockchain, Cloud Technologies, Connectivity, Industrial Biotechnology, the Internet of Things, Micro- and Nanoelectronics, Mobility, Nanotechnology, Photonics, Robotics, and Security.

OECD Science, Technology and Innovation Outlook 2021 - Times of Crisis and Opportunity - Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD)

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.
