EC publishes study on research productivity
The European Commission has recently published a study on factors impeding the productivity of research and the prospects for open science policies to improve the ability of the research and innovation system. The study aims to review evidence on three related lines of enquiry at the core of the current debates on research policy and practice: (i) factors that can hinder the productivity of research; (ii) prospects for open science practices to improve research productivity; and (iii) the ability of research and innovation systems to transform financial investments in research into valuable outputs and societal outcomes. Evidence on these topics have been combined to devise areas of action and policy guidelines to transform research and innovation systems to make them more productive and impactful.
