Policy Analysis and Resource
Indicators in Science (PARIS)

was designed to take a fresh look at how we map and measure science in the 'knowledge-driven economy' - taking account of changing views of innovation, of the dynamics of knowledge production, and of increased demands for public participation and accountability.


There was one project under the PARIS programme, International Social Science Comparisons (ISSC), funded by the UK Economic and Social Research Council, and by BMF+B for contributory work from Germany. ISSC will be worked from May 2001 to March 2002.
