Towards a multidimensional classification of social media users around science on Twitter

With the advent of altmetrics, digital traces that go beyond the scientific impact can be tracked. Twitter stands as the most appealing platform for their inspection since it gathers academic and non-academic users that discuss a wide-ranging number of topics. This research aims at developing and proposing a fine-grained classification of social media users based on mapping techniques and clustering methods and compare them with other tentative classifications proposed elsewhere.

Team collaboration capabilities as drivers for innovation performance: the case of Spanish technology-based startups.

Technology-Based Startups (TBSs) are newly emerged entrepreneurial ventures typically launched by a team with the purpose of bringing innovative products or services to market and achieving the scalability of their business models. Today, it is widely recognized that TBSs play a very important role in the economy as a source of disruptive and radical innovations and creation of new jobs.

From productive interactions to productive science system dynamics: understanding the key dimensions in developing SSH research societal impact

In this paper we seek to realise the potential that Spaapen & Van Drooge’s productive interactions concept offers, but which we argue has been lost through its operationalisation as a process of ‘counting interactions’. Productive interactions arise through moments of contact between two very different systems (the societal and the scientific), and each system values societal impact in very different ways.

Innovations in Early Music Festivals

To identify and analyse the innovations implemented by early music festivals a questionnaire based on the innovation sites in creative industries identified by Miles and Green (2008) was designed, discussed with the Executive Board of Directors of the European Early Music Network (REMA), and then administered in an online survey that was answered by 45% of directors of early music festivals which were member of European Early Music Network.

What role, economic model and benefits for Festivals in the digital age? An international cross comparison analysis in the audiovisual and publishing industries

Festivals are one of the most diffused examples of living production in all the field of cultural and creative industries (CCIs), (Frey, 1994; Caves, 2000; Luonila, Johansson, 2016). Nonetheless, till the 90s “The study of temporary events such as festivals, markets, fairs and other ephemeral events is finally relatively limited”1 (Benghozi, Nénert, 1995: 66). In recent years, festivals attracted an increased attention also because of their remarkable increase in number (del Barrio et al., 2012; Vecco, Srakar, 2017; Baez-Montenegro, Devesa-Fernandez, 2017).

Aligning scientific impact and societal relevance: the roles of academic engagement and interdisciplinary research

Scientific findings from publicly-funded research are increasingly expected to demonstrate both
scientific impact and societal relevance. Scientific impact is associated with achieving recognition within
the community of scientists; while societal relevance is related to the capacity to respond to the needs
of non-academic audiences. Despite the advocacy of policy discourses, the pursuit and achievement of
this dual mission face important challenges.
