ERAWATCH, the European Commission's gateway to research policy, launches its first user survey
Through this first user survey, the JRC Institute for Prospective Technological Studies (IPTS) intends to collect information about the way ERAWATCH users perceive and use the online information platform, as well as to gather suggestions and expectations to support the service's future evolution. The survey will be open until March 14, 2008.
ERAWATCH is a European online information platform on research systems and policies. The service is a joint initiative of the European Commission's Directorates General for Research and the JRC.
ERAWATCH supports the ongoing construction of the European Research Area (ERA) by providing policy makers and policy analysts working in the field of science and research with condensed and updated information and analysis on the development of research systems and policies in all Member States of the European Union plus selected other countries. It contains information on recent policy documents, research programmes, funding agencies, research performance as well as major indicators such as expenditure, publications and patents.
