Exploring JoREP 2.0: features and potential uses in the studies on Europeanisation of research activities
May 25, 2017 @ 11:00 am - May 26, 2017 @ 3:00 pm
Course participants and trainers
The course aims at introducing JoREP 2.0 database, presenting the new features, highlighting the specific contents and framing its potential uses in the context of the theoretical background on which has been designed. It will also train to address research questions on joint programming within the ERA using the infrastructure.
JoREP 2.0 database is a unique data archive which allows monitoring the modes of relationship, the functions performed and the amounts allocated by the actors involved in the European Research Area (ERA). The facility offers a large and updated data collection performed for 32 countries until 2014 and opportunity to perform a broader range of analyses compared to the previous release (e.g. spatial or network analyses). The course aims at introducing this renovated research resource, presenting the new features, highlighting the specific contents and framing its potential uses in the context of the theoretical background on which have been designed.

14:00 – 14:30 Quality of data in JoREP 2.0 database: presentation of the sources, potentialities and limitations for the data analysis
14:30 – 15:30 Presentation of the technical structure and the characteristics of the variables; First approach with the database.
16:00 – 18:00 Presentation and application of querying techniques with MS Access
Day 2 – May 26, 2017
9:00 – 10:30 Hands-on session: exercitations on examples of extractions and elaborations
11:00 – 12:00 Discussion with the trainees about the results and further potential applications (hands-on on request)
12:00 – 13:00 Some examples of descriptive statistics, applications of Network analysis from JoREP 2.0 database
14:00 – 14:30 Wrap-up and presentation of RISIS rules for visiting
The course aims at involving up to 15 participants and is addressed to:
- Senior scientist, early career researchers and PhD students at the last phase of their training
- Officers from the policy making level (e.g. funding agencies);
- Research associations.
Requirements for participation
- Basic working knowledge of MS ACCESS
- Basics on data querying
- No fee to be paid
- Venue of the trainees (travel and accommodation) will be covered only in case of researchers, early researchers and PhDs coming from European countries
- No costs are covered for people not involved in research activities (i.e. people from associations or policy level)
- Participants will be selected on the basis of interest and CV
- Notification of acceptance will be sent after the selection process is completed
Participants attending the course will be asked to send some preliminary questions about data handling in MS ACCESS in order to focus on specific topics applied to the JoREP 2.0 database.
