See on Scoop.itDual impact of research; towards the impactelligent university

The study “Investments in JOint and open R&D Programmes and analysis of their economic impact” (the JOREP study) has been launched by the Directorate General for Research and Innovation of the European Commission (Economic Analysis Unit) to quantify and analyse the coordination and opening-up of national public funding which constitute a fundamental development towards a more integrated European Research Area. This study is part of a set of projects providing key information for policy making in the perspective of contributing to growth in Europe through innovation policies. The JOREP study addresses questions like: What is the EU member states’ engagement in transnationally coordinated programmes? What is the openness of their public R&D programmes? What needs do joint and open R&D programmes mainly respond to? What are the main motivations driving the joint undertaking of research and the opening of R&D programmes? Are there differences between scientific domains? The study aims at providing a sound quantitative basis for the monitoring of investments in joint and open research programmes in EU countries, as well as empirical evidence of the policy rationales and impacts of these programmes on the European Research Area. The project has carried out a comprehensive collection of data about joint and open programmes according to a set of standardised descriptors, and provided an analysis of motivations and impact of these programmes. The study covers eleven European countries corresponding to about 85% of national public funding in Europe and displaying various situations within ERA: medium-size countries with a well-developed science basis, large countries, Mediterranean countries, and Central and Eastern European Member States. These countries are (in alphabetical order): the Czech Republic, Denmark, France, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Switzerland, Spain, and the United Kingdom. This publication is the Final report of the study. It is accompanied by the study’s methodological Handbook. These two publications, as well as a short Summary report of the study, the detailed Analytical Report and 11 Country reports are available at: research/innovationunion/index_en.cfm?pg=other-studies
