Muhamed Kudic: "Network and Output Measurement - Indicators for Transformative Technology Fields"

On 10 October 2019, a conference was held at the newly opened FUTURIUM in Berlin's government district to present the indicator projects funded by the BMBF. The event, which was attended by numerous guests, served to discuss forward-looking data and indicator projects for innovation research and policy. Muhamed Kudic presented the findings of the BMBF-funded project "Neo-Indicatorik". The central task of the project is to trace the analysis unit "company" over time along all structural events (e.g. takeover, split-up, bankruptcy) and to add further company information such as turnover, employees, sector, patents, location, etc. In this way, the "life stories" of the companies so far documented only statically are reconstructed. The method is applied in the context of the Neo-Indicatorik project using the example of German electromobility and can in future be applied to other sectors, fields of technology or entire countries.
