Head of Metrics Development at Digital Science, Mike Taylor, will be attending the STI conference in Paris from the 6th – 8th September.
The 2017 STI conference addresses the new issues and challenges that have appeared in Science, Technology and Innovation indicators. We are witnessing sharp changes in the recent years: new areas of knowledge are appearing, new types of objects need to be taken into account, new methodologies and visualisations have been proposed, a combination of different policy interests emerging from a large variety of social actors modify the demands addressed to indicators. Most of these challenges relate to profound changes in the way science, technology and innovation relate to society; indicators — necessarily— reflect these changes, taking into account the needs and strategies of the many different actors involved.
