News archive - [Database launch & Call for contribution] SIPER - Science and innovation Policy Evaluation Repository

It is a central source of data and knowledge on research and innovation policy evaluations. It includes a comprehensive collection of evaluations on science and innovation policy instruments. Not only that, each policy measure and each evaluation in the SIPER database has been systematically characterised following a uniform template. On this basis, users can search for evaluations that show a certain combination of characteristics and/or deal with a certain kind of policy instrument or measure.

The scope of this tool is to include evaluations of science and innovation policy programmes conducted since 2000 (with a few exceptions). Starting with OECD countries, SIPER aims at a global geographical coverage.

Searching in the database can be combining different characteristics (or search criteria): You can search for evaluations of measures in selected countries, with selected target groups and objectives that interest you, or you may want to limit the search to evaluations that use specific methods and cover specific topics.
