Discussion paper: New indicators for Open Science and Open Innovation

Established indicators for research and innovation processes do not sufficiently capture the nuances of open science and open innovation. As a result, their opportunities and risks often remain obscure. A new discussion paper therefore makes proposals for the expansion of existing indicators and the development of new ones. We looked at possible innovations in the field of open science.


Discussion paper: New indicators for Open Science and Open Innovation

by Birgit Fingerle In order to better identify the opportunities and risks of open science and open innovation, including those that relate to research and technology policy, a fundamental reconsidering of the recording, analysis and evaluation of the practices and structures of open science and open innovation should take place. The discussion paper “Open Science and Open Innovation – New Indicators for the Analysis of the Science and Innovation System in the Digital Age” (“Open Science und Open Innovation – Neue Indikatoren für die Analyse des Wissenschafts- und Innovationssystems im digitalen Zeitalter”, link in German language) by Clemens Blümel, published […]

Blockchain: How it could make research more open and transparent

Blockchains are credited with bringing great benefits for economics and society. This also applies to the higher education sector. A recently published study explores blockchain in higher education. We took a closer look at which application scenarios seem to be particularly interesting in relation to promoting open science.
