THURSDAY, DECEMBER 12th

9:30-10:00 Opening
Place: Assembly Hall
Welcome. President of the University of Cordoba
Aims and organization of the conference: Coordinators of the Joint Unit CSIC-UCO “Innovation, Transfer and Knowledge”

10:00 – 11:00 Public policies for knowledge transfer in the Spanish innovation system
Mrs. Ángeles Heras-Caballero, Secretary of State for Universities, Research and Development, and Innovation, Government of Spain

11:00 – 11:30 Coffee break

11:30 – 13:30 Symposium I: The evaluation of knowledge transfer and impact and the governance of science and innovation
Place: Assembly Hall
The evaluation of knowledge transfer and impact is at the interface between research and public policies. It is a growing multidisciplinary specialty of innovation studies and also a tool for organizing and governing research programmes and institutions. Synergies as well as well as decoupling between the state of knowledge and the practical implementation of evaluation in public policies are common, especially in a context of wider expectations about the social and economic benefits of publicly funded R&D. This symposium will analyze the current state of the art with a series of presentations about research streams to evaluate knowledge transfer and impact together with significant experiences in the international arena.

Chair: Jordi Molas Gallart (INGENIO, CSIC/UPV)

17:30 – 19:30 Symposium II: The measurement of knowledge transfer and impact: Alternative metrics
Places: Assembly Hall
Altmetrics allow us to measure how research outputs transcend the scholarly world by a series of uses and impacts in different domains. These metrics value the way in which the research papers impact on the public opinion (social networks), mass media (blogs and news), innovation (patents) or education (Wikipedia). This symposium will discuss the power of Altmetrics as a measurement instrument for knowledge transfer and the social understanding of science. It will discuss also the advantages and limitations of alternative metrics as a tool for research evaluation.

Moderator: José Luis Ortega (Joint Research Unit ITC, CSIC-UCO, IESA-CSIC)

Keynote 1: Which kinds of knowledge transfer can Altmetrics capture?
Mike Thelwall (University of Wolverhampton)

11:30 – 13:30 Symposium III: The role of knowledge transfer and impact in current research evaluation agencies
Place: Mudejar Hall
As a result of claims for wider returns from public investment in science and innovation, research evaluation agencies are trying to use new tools to capture knowledge transfer when distributing resources to teams and institutions. They are also trying to use them in individuals for purposes of recruitment and promotion in scientific careers. However, agencies have to face challenges when implementing and legitimizing a variety procedure in combination with the traditional ways of judging academic science. This symposium will review significant experiences from evaluation agencies in individuals, teams and institutions and will discuss possibilities and limitations for a systematic use of knowledge transfer and impact assessment in innovation systems.
