Benchmarking the internationalisation of research networks and key RTD institutions in LAC Task 1.4 Dirk Johann, ZSI Annual Consortium Meeting 26-03-2009, Lissabon
Main questions What are the main barriers, enablers and current trends driving/hindering the scientific collaboration between Latin American and European researchers? What are the main drivers for LAC researchers to collaborate with European researchers in different thematic fields? Who establishes the agenda and the main research topics to be studied in EU-LAC collaborative networks? What role does the Framework Programme play in the internationalisation of the research agenda of key RTD institutions in LAC?
Methodology Development of appropriate benchmarking approach to analyse the role of EU-LAC collaboration links in fields of specialisation and to compare its impact on the internationalisation of key RTD institutions in EU and LAC Complementary analysis (on individual researcher and institutional level) builds on the results of tasks 1.1 and 1.3 Online survey (Snowball sampling) relies on referrals from initial study subjects to generate additional subjects
Methodology Who is surveyed? Latin American scientists that have published one or several scientific articles in co-authorship with foreigners including at least one European scientist How were the scientists for the online survey identified? From SCI, SSCI, AHCI databases (based on the co-publications indexed since 2003) How will the key collaborative institutions (EU- LAC) be identified? Institutional survey on patterns of EU-LAC research networking in internationally funded (FP and other) projects
Pilot Phase Construction of indicators Main benchmarking survey Pre-questionnaire Identification of key collaborative R&D networks and institutions in LAC Validation and analysis of results Implementation steps
Pre-questionnaire has been launched Pilot phase will be concluded by mid May Draft of benchmarking questionnaire ready end of April Benchmarking workshop in May (?) Main survey to be implemented in June Analysis and drafting of report from August to September Implementation steps
