The book was produced as part of the BMBF-funded research project "Neo-Indikatorik" (Network and Output Measurement - Indicators for Transformative Technology Transfer). Over a period of three years, the project team worked on the development of new indicators for research, development and innovation and recently presented its findings at a final conference organized by the BMBF. The collaborative project was led by Andreas Kladroba of the Stifterverband's Wissenschaftsstatistik GmbH and carried out jointly with the Center for Solar Energy and Hydrogen Research (ZSW) Stuttgart and the University of Bremen.
