EFI-Studies on the German innovation system

Performance and Structures of the German Science System

Start of the project: 01-Apr-2018

As part of the Studies on the German innovation system, annual reports are compiled on Germany's performance in various topics of research, innovation and technology, which provide the crucial empirical data to serve as the basis for recommendations from the Expert Commission for Research and Innovation (EFI).

The focus of one of these studies is the analysis and description of private and public research and innovation in international benchmarking using bibliometric indicators. The report will provide information on Germany's research performance through comparisons internally and with selected countries. In particular, publication performance and its impact, as well as the extent, focus and impact of international collaborations, will be presented over time using robust and well-founded methods of bibliometrics. Part of this study also entails identifying the strengths and weaknesses of the German research and innovation system, again in the context of international comparison.
