Goals and Added Value

Raising research skills needed for using large data

RISIS TRAINING aims at raising the research skills needed for using large data sets and developing indicators, offering general introductions to the features of the RISIS facilities and focusing on indicators and data handling.

Transferring Knowledge about the potential of RISIS Facilities

Training will highlight the opportunities for the end-users, displaying several mode of exploitation of the RISIS datasets (for instance, application of statistic and econometric analysis and use of scientometric tools).

Supplying Evidence of the impact of RISIS on a community of scholars

Training will be generally associated with the use of one or more datasets, which are shared by RISIS partners and will focus on mobilization of data and indicators for policy analysis and research policy purposes.

 

 

Three types of courses

Short courses type A (SCA): one or two-day courses

  • aimed at illustrating the content and the use of the RISIS datasets;
  • focused on the presentation of the potentialities of the facility;
  • accompanied by a complete documentation, slides and other relevant materials available on the RISIS website.

Short courses type B (SCB): Two-day training on given subject as

  • the use of specific dataset(s) and indicators and treatment of heterogeneous data;
  • statistic, econometric and scientometric approaches using the selected dataset(s);
  • new developments of indicators and data analysis (e.g. textual data treatment and web-based indicators).

Summer schools (SS): One-week courses covering

  • thematic issues (for instance, internationalization, collaboration, performance assessment, mapping, etc.);
  • methodological issues (articulating and agglomerating the RISIS databases);
  • policy issues (use of data and indicators for performance assessment, European integration).
