What?

This project is a master thesis written by Duarte O.Carmo, an Engineering Management Student at the Technical University of Denmark. In summary, the project aims a measuring the technological capabilities (scientific knowledge) of countries, time periods, or organizations with the goal of understanding its intricacies.

Why?

The idea for it was born from two other initiatives:

  • EURITO: this European Comission Project brings together a consortium of organisations with the goals of utilising new data sources and methods to improve R&I. In summary, the European Comission believes that there is a need to improve Research and Innovation policies and that data science can play an important role in helping them.

  • AMICA: AMICA stands for Advanced Mapping of Industrial Capabilities. It aims at mapping worldwide industrial capabilities to support the development of new technologies, products, and services with positive climate change impact. It's first proof of concept uses the development of sustainable biofuels as a case for capability mapping.

It is believed that this MSc. Project will assist push these two initiatives forward by providing a proof of concept on how the data collected can be used to help entities develop better policies.
