Notten, Ad, Jojo Jacob, Bulat Sanditov & Alex Surpatean, Jan 2019, Analysis of patents, publications and new organisations from FP7-ICT and CIP-ICT projects, This study report provides an in-depth examination of the publications and patents reported through the yearly survey waves undertaken by DG CNECT in the years 2008-2017. It is also the culmination of two consecutive ex-post research evaluations, of which the first exercise starting in 2012 and the second in 2016. The results of both these research assessments, SMART 2011/0039 and SMART 2015/0078, are created in this report. Additional analysis of the productivity and quality of the research output of projects funded under FP7 ICT using a longitudinal dataset is foremost concentrated on two data sets; one of patents, the other of publications. Next to these two datasets, we also conduct a preliminary analysis into the data collected on newly created organisations for the years 2014 to 2016. This report covers the entirety of the FP7 projects launched during the years 2007 to 2013, for their productive years from 2007 to 2016, More information
