Research and technological innovation

Research and innovation lie at the basis of the competitiveness of people, companies, institutions and territories, and constitute the heart of the Europe 2020 Strategy. Translating strategy into reality requires the ability to act expeditiously in a complex and multidisciplinary sector which, in order to define choices, requires knowledge of technologies, companies, production chains, medium and long term economic and technological. It is a constantly evolving sector in which significant risks of failure need to be dealt with.

Research and innovation are the basis of competitiveness of people, companies, institutions and territories, and constitute the heart of the Europe 2020 Strategy. Translating strategy into reality requires the ability to act rapidly in a complex, multidisciplinary sector which, in order to define choices, requires a knowledge of technologies, companies, production chains and medium- and long-term economic and technological objectives. It is a constantly evolving sector in which significant risks of failure need to be dealt with.

Ismeri Europa assists the institutions and various public and private stakeholders in the design, management and evaluation of research and technological innovation.

Ismeri Europa is one of the leading research institutes in Europe and is involved in:

  • evaluation of research programmes and projects, innovation and technology transfer;
  • analysis of research and innovation of territorial systems scenario analysis, foresight and benchmarking;
  • strategic advisory services to public and private entities required to decide and manage high tech activities.

Ismeri Europa has gained extensive experience in these areas and relies on a network of international experts.

RED provides a technology intelligence service based on a database that organizes all the relevant information contained in the applied research projects funded by the Seventh European Framework Programme for Research and Technological Development (FP7). RED is the result of an analysis of more than 6,000 projects funded and classified according to a taxonomy, tested in nine application areas, which are subdivided into scientific and key technologies areas and which cover the whole of the intervention of the 7FP on science and technology.

RED provides a technology intelligence service based on a database that organizes all the relevant information contained in the applied research projects funded by the Seventh European Framework Programme for Research and Technological Development (FP7). RED is the result of an analysis of over 6,000 projects funded and classified according to a taxonomy, tested in nine application areas which are subdivided into scientific and key technologies areas and cover the whole of the intervention of the 7FP on science and technology.

RED has been designed with the aim of helping decision-makers to define policies and interventions regarding the formulation of national and regional strategies in accordance with the Horizon 2020 programme and Smart Specialisation; it provides data for definition on the scale of individual technologies and provides additional information on the spatial nature of the geographic location (NUTS 1 and NUTS 2) of financed subjects (firms, universities, research centres) and the type of investment and financial resources covering the seven years of the programme (2007-2013). It also supplies data to companies; universities and research centres that need to do benchmarking analysis or find partners and best performers in specific scientific areas or key technologies.

This makes RED a systematically updated innovative research tool which is applicable to any other set of regional, national and EU RTDI interventions not available on the market. RED provides researchers and public officials with useful information and the essential knowledge they need for analysis, planning and evaluation activities related to research policies and innovation. In addition to macro analysis, RED offers detailed micro data required to do analysis (scenario, benchmarking, etc.) at the level of individual technologies and key issues within them. RED is therefore useful in several directions, whether macro or micro.
