Are you interested in how Data4Impact identifies and measures the impact of science, technology and innovation policies within the health sector?
Although there are many approaches and initiatives towards assessing the societal impacts of R&I, there is no comprehensive model to date that captures this aspect from an innovation research perspective. Data4Impact intends to close this gap by utilising big data approaches to improve the monitoring of research and innovation performance and assessing the impacts for the Societal Challenge ‘Health, Demographic Change and Wellbeing’. As a first major working step, we have already developed a conceptual framework and a set of indicators. Attendees of the workshop were invited to discuss this conceptual framework and assess the indicators identified so far in terms of their suitability, reliability and implementability.
