Welcome to RISIS Datasets Portal!
Access to RISIS datasets is offered through a two-step process:
  • Accreditation: researchers need to register and agree on the conditions of use (good use of data, authorship, mentions to the RISIS project, agreement of posting results and aggregated datasets produced on RISIS website) via signing a charter of good use.
  • Selection: researchers need to develop a project based upon the mobilisation of one or more datasets. Projects are reviewed both by the relevant dataset producers and by the RISIS project review board that will give the final agreement for access.
* Cost for travel and on site stay (when needed) will be covered by the RISIS project.

JoREP 2.0 - Joint Research Programmes database
JoREP 2.0 is a database on joint R&D programmes. It provides a quantitative basis for the monitoring of investments in joint R&D programmes in the countries belonging to the European Research Area (ERA), pointing out the policy rationales behind them and their impact. The set of data aims at describing when, how and serving what purposes European-level initiatives and bilateral/multilateral joint R&D programmes are combined. JoREP 2.0 also supports the analysis of important ERA dynamics and Europeanization processes through the study of the behaviour of main national actors (i.e. funding agencies).

The MORE Dataset
MORE (Mobility Survey of the Higher Education Sector) is arguably the most comprehensive empirical study of researcher mobility available. The study targets researchers working in different fields at higher education institutes in the EU and associated countries. It provides internationally comparable data on personal characteristics and education, current employment and working conditions, as well as range of measures on international (and sector) mobility, including factors that influence mobility, and effects that can be linked to researcher mobility. MORE also has a longitudinal dimension. It currently consists of a proto-study (MORE I in 2009), a fully-fledge study (MOREII in 2012) while a third iteration is under planning for 2018 (MOREIII).The MOREII dataset (found here)includes 10,500 responses stratified by country and field of science. The MOREI study can also be provided upon request.

The NANO Dataset
The Nano S&T dynamics database (Nano) developed by IFRIS collects publications and patents between 1991 and 2011 about nano S&T. One central characteristics of emerging S&T is that they do not correspond to pre-existing categorisations and require the elaboration of semantic based queries. IFRIS has developed a dynamic query gathering 1.18 million publications and 735000 priority patents. Four types of enrichments have been organised dealing with: (i) categorisation and harmonisation of institutional affiliations, (ii) geolocalisation of all authors and inventors; (iii) geographical clustering of S&T activities; and (iv) thematic clustering of S&T activities. It offers for each publication, 14 ‘main units of observation’ and 11 for patents.
