Presentation Overview

The EU-funded JEUPISTE project aims at promoting EU-Japan cooperation in Science, Technology and Innovation (STI) through support to policy dialogue, information provision and networking. As an input do the policy dialogue, the project carries out scientometric analyses of research cooperation, aiming to provide an evidence-base on existing collaboration patterns. The present bibliometric study analyses international journal paper co-authorship between authors from Japan and the EU in the period from 2003 to 2012. Particular emphasis will be on the identification of geographic patterns, thematic strengths and research hotspots, impact as well as benchmarking with the US as another major S&T cooperation partner of Japan. The results available are preliminary and the goal of this presentation and a subsequent project workshop (with the involvement of Japanese S&T policy makers) is to discuss potential findings and to collect qualitative information essential for contextualising the quantitative data.
