Summary Sentence: Featuring Rainer Frietsch on Gender Aspects

Full Summary: Rainer will offer a presentation on "Gender Aspects of Patenting and Publishing."

The School of Public Policy is pleased to welcome Rainer Frietsch, from the Fraunhofer Institute for Systems and Innovations Research. Rainer will be a visiting researcher with the Program in Science, Technology and Innovation Policy (STIP) from October 11 through to October 26th.

Rainer's visit gives us a wonderful opportunity to continue our master class series on the application of bibliometric indicators in innovation research.

On Tuesday, October 16, 4pm, Rainer will offer a presentation on "Gender Aspects of Patenting and Publishing."

This will be one of the first detailed presentations at Georgia Tech on the use of SCOPUS -- said to be the largest abstract and citation database of peer-reviewed literature and quality web sources. SCOPUS is emerging as an alternative to the Web of Science (WoS) SCI/SSCI databases, especially since it allows analysis by factors which are not as yet available in WoS. Rainer
and his colleagues are using SCOPUS for the identification of male and female authors in 8 scientific fields. They also use the ESPACE data of European Patent applications to identify male and female inventors. The analysis has been undertaken for 14 countries (based on 4 languages), including the United States, Britain, France, Germany, Italy and Spain. Based on this, Rainer has analyzed changes in female participation over time and in selected scientific and technological fields.

All faculty and students are welcome to attend the seminar!

Rainer Frietsch has a business and management background and studied social science at the University of Mannheim. He has been a research scientist in Competence Center of Innovation Systems and Policy in the Fraunhofer Institute for System and Innovation Research since 2000. Rainer's research interests include patent statistics, bibliometrics, economic and social
indicators, qualification and education in the innovation process, technology foresight, and methodological foundations for empirical research.

Rainer is also available to meet faculty and students independently while he is in Atlanta.
