The Rathenau Instituut promotes the formation of political and public opinion on science and technology. To this end, the Institute studies the organization and development of science systems, publishes about social impact of new technologies, and organizes debates on issues and dilemmas in science and technology.
Technology Foundation STW can trace its roots back to the program for Technical Physics and Innovation initiated by the FOM Foundation at the end of the 1970s. The foundation's objective has been to realize knowledge transfer from excellent technical scientific research. Several years ago the emphasis in the mission was changed to knowledge transfer between the technical sciences and users so as to emphasize the role of the users in all STW projects. During the research projects users provide valuable recommendations and contribute their own knowledge, which can lead to a tightening of the research question. Ultimately innovation – or in STW terms utilization – is the result of the joint efforts between researchers and users.
The Association of Universities in the Netherlands (VSNU) is formed by the fourteen Dutch Universities. The VSNU represents the interests of the universities to the government, politics and non governmental organizations.
The VSNU does this by facilitating debate, developing and representing joint positions, supporting the reputation of the university sector and making strategic choices to strengthen scientific education and research in the Netherlands.
Researchfish, a research outcomes collection system for research funders, researchers and institutes. Our aim is to decrease the duplication involved in outcome reporting and increase the opportunity to collaborate, compare and signpost research impacts by introducing a structured data collection service which can: capture activities, outputs and outcomes using a structured and consistent set of common outcomes between funders, track pathways to impact using a common portal, evidence the outputs from your funded research increasing the transparency of investments, share findings with stakeholders and supporters with the option to benchmark with collaborators and co-funders with consistently captured outcomes and use outputs and outcomes to inform funding and research strategies and increase opportunity for collaboration.
ISSI Society aims to encourage communication and exchange of professional information in the field of scientometrics and informetrics, to improve standards, theory and practice in all areas of the discipline, to stimulate research, education and training and to enhance the public perception of the discipline. It enhances the theory, methods and explanations using quantitative studies and mathematical, statistical and computational modeling and analysis of information processes.
The Centre for Science and Technology Studies (CWTS) is an interdisciplinary institute at Leiden University. CWTS studies the dynamics of scientific research and its connections to technology, innovation and society. This means studying scientific and academic research from a scientific point of view. The research staff comes from a broad and diverse spectrum of specialised academic fields ranging from psychology, political science, literature studies and information science to computer science, economics, physics and chemistry.
PraxisUnico is the UK's leading professional association for research commercialisation practitioners. It provides a voice for the sector and facilitates interactions between public sector research, business and government. PraxisUnico delivers professional training programmes in the UK and around the world, promoting best practice knowledge transfer.
Altmetric is a data science company that collates online mentions of research outputs. Our data enables institutions and faculty to monitor online engagement around research, assess impact in non-traditional sources like policy documents and mainstream news, report on impact at the institutional, departmental and author level, and benchmark against peer institutions. Our customers include world-leading funders, publishers and institutions, and to date we have tracked online mentions of over 3 million individual research outputs.
