Centre for Science and Technology Studies
The Centre for Science and Technology Studies (CWTS) studies scientific research and its connections to technology, innovation, and society. Our research, bibliometric and scientometric tools, and evaluation expertise provide a solid basis for supporting research assessment and strategic decision making and for developing science policy.
In 2022, CWTS held a series of open science seminars together with the Research Councils of The Netherlands (NWO) and Norway (RCN). Now, all resources from the seminars are available on a new Open Science Knowledge Platform. This blogpost reflects on building this platform and next steps to come.
Narrative CVs allow researchers to offer contextual accounts of their career. Ideally, they bring about more inclusive forms of research evaluation. In this collective blog post, we report on a 5-day workshop organized to reflect on narrative CVs and the many questions and opportunities they raise.
The STI 2022 conference held in Granada was my first large face-to-face conference since the pandemic. I was privileged to attend physically and reconnect with my international peers again. This trip meant a lot to me, but also made me reflect again on the new normal of research connection.
The 27th International Conference on Science, Technology and Innovation Indicators, 2023, will be held September 27-29, 2023 in Leiden, in collaboration with the European Network of Indicator Developers (ENID).
