Research areas

Find here (Internationalization of the R&D, Nanotechnologies, Map of technologies, Text analytics) short presentations of various research topics related to our projects. They are deeply linked to the study of science and technology and usually driven by a quantitative point of view. This perspective allows us to draw some basic elements of the studied fields (scientific and technological fields).

With each research area (Internationalization of the R&D, Nanotechnologies, Map of technologies, Text analytics) is associated at the bottom of the page all the visualizations (geographical maps, maps of actors or institutions, treemap, video) that correspond to them.

Global Map Of Technologie
Global Map Of Technologie >>

This research presents first a document level global map of technology. In a second place, the technological portfolios of two large industrial corporations are projected on this global map, allowing comparisons that are visually attractive and potentially useful for research, development and innovation policy makers as for research managers within corporations.

Media frames streams - monitoring World food security issues
Media frames streams - monitoring World food security issues >>

PulseWeb project explored whether is possible to track and comprehend thematic shifts in media attention through the automatic analysis of news articles. To do so, we analyzed how the Francophone media reported on food security issues over the past 8 years.

Technological collaborations in the field of nanotechnologies
Technological collaborations in the field of nanotechnologies >>

This article displays an interactive map of technological collaborations between geographical clusters where patents were registered in the field of nanotechnologies between 1990 and 2007. We have drawn a map of the networks created concerning the inventors and their localizations.

Nanotechnologies and geographical concentration
Nanotechnologies and geographical concentration >>

Have a look at the great scientific and technical dynamics that are operating (see video) in yhe field of nanotechnologies. In a world of global trading, the role played by geographical areas in the dynamics of localization does not seem very important.
