Analysis of patents, publications, innovations and new organisations from FP7-ICT and CIP-ICT projects
This final study report provides an in-depth examination of the publications and patents reported through the yearly survey waves undertaken by DG CNECT in the years 2008 2017. It is also the culmination of two consecutive ex-post research evaluations, of which the first exercise starting in 2012 and the second in 2016. The results of both these research assessments, SMART 2011/0039 and SMART 2015/0078, are presented in this report. The assessments consist of the analyses of the productivity and quality of the research output of projects funded under FP7 ICT. Using results from these analyses... we carry out an econometric analysis, in order to gain more insights on the factors contributing to the scientific and technological performance of the funded projects. Furthermore we conduct an analysis of the cooperation behavior of the project participants and, in a novel way, we measure the degree of overlapping national and regional research interests by analysing keywords that describe the publication output. Finally we conduct a preliminary analysis into the data collected on newly created organisations for the years 2014 to 2016. This report covers the entirety of the FP7 ICT projects launched during the years 2007 to 2013, for their productive years from 2007 to 2016.
