The European Commission JRC-IPTS is organising the 5th European Conference on Corporate R&D and Innovation CONCORDi 2015 next 1-2 October 2015.
The conference will focus on industrial research and innovation: evidence for policy. It will discuss the role of scientific analyses in the design and implementation of an EU industrial policy based on research, innovation and technological advancement.
JRC-IPTS is active in developing data analytics applications for evidence-based policy advice, with a focus on the ICT industry in Europe. Work performed in this field includes tools and methods used to identify EU poles of excellence in ICTs and still ongoing trials with knowledge discovery, pattern recognition, semantic analysis and visualisation techniques. It is addressing diverse aspects such as innovation networks, technology co-evolution or the profiling of ICT techno-economic segments.
The 3-day summer school will bring together scientists and policy-makers from the field of energy to learn how to better use evidence for policy-making.
