Building International Capacity for Science & Innovation Policy


We work with organizations to build a scientifically grounded conceptual and empirical framework that enables them to better describe and manage their science investments.

Our work informs the regional, national and international debate on research measurement and accountability in several ways:

Describing research investments to better identify research strengths, gaps, and changes over time

Describing researcher activity to better identify promising and productive individuals and networks

Describing the results of research to better document the results of science investments


We do this by:

Using new open source tools and technologies to leverage and link existing data on scientific activities

Developing theoretically and empirically sensible measures to describe the links between science investments and scientific, economic and social results

Working with national and international organizations to build an open community of practice
