Data-Driven Analytics

Measuring the outcomes and impacts of a scientific investment is becoming increasingly important, but how does one connect the various products of scholarly research, such as publications, patents, and conference proceedings, to everyday products and technologies that benefit society at large?

The BRICC leverages quantitative tools and methods to try to understand the broader impact of research; provides data-driven analytics to support decision-making; and specializes in applied scientometrics, the quantitative study of scientific research, to characterize science trends and impact.
