Innovation, Research and Development

Innovation plays a pivotal role not only in strengthening the competitiveness of national economies across the EU, but also in boosting their ability to tackle grand societal challenges.

In recent years, there has been a shift from R&I policies driven solely by economic agenda towards mission-oriented approaches. The latter are characterized by ambitious goals, which cross traditional disciplinary or sectoral boundaries.

Hence, the governance of R&D&I increasingly asks for smarter, bolder, and better tailored policies, developed in the spirit of cooperation and co-creation.

In line with our expertise, at Visionary Analytics we support the development of R&D&I policies by offering impact assessment, evaluation and contract research services, as well as technical assistance.

Selected projects

European Research Data Landscape (2021-2022)

The study focuses on describing the characteristics of the research data ecosystem in the EU, Horizon 2020 Associated Countries (AC) and the UK, by looking at research data production, reuse, and depositing practices, as well as FAIR data principles (findability, accessibility, interoperability, and reusability). The project is implemented along with Digital Curation Centre (DCC), Data Archiving and Networked Services (DANS), and European Future Innovation System (EFIS) for European Commission Directorate-General for Research and Innovation (DG RTD).

Study to support the impact assessment on the Strategic Innovation Agenda of the European Institute of Innovation and Technology (2017-2018)

Through the study we supported DG EAC and the European Institute of Innovation and Technology (EIT) in developing and appraising options for further improvement of the performance of the EIT through a partnership with SQW Limited. The tasks included developing a system of indicators for measurement of long-term socio-economic impacts, assessing the suitability of thematic areas where future Innovation Communities might be established, and other.

Enhancing the efficiency of business-science cooperation (2019-2020)

With this assignment we provided detailed recommendations and guidance to the Ministry of Economy and Innovation of Lithuania and other relevant stakeholders on drafting the National Science and Technology Programmes (NSTPs). The NSTPs were specifically tailored to the needs of four economic sectors, namely the agro-food industry, engineering (incl. laser technology), life sciences, and ICT. The project is delivered with European Future Innovation System (EFIS) for European Commission, Structural Reform Support Service.
