This panel session focuses on STIP Compass, a digital knowledge management infrastructure maintained by the European Commission and OECD for collecting and displaying data on countries’ STI policies. STIP Compass contains information on more than 6,000 STI policy initiatives currently in force in more than 50 participating countries. Traffic to STIP Compass continues to increase steadily, surpassing 100,000 unique visits per year during 2020. The specific focus of the panel session is on the usefulness of STIP Compass in supporting policy makers and analysts as they seek to promote transformative innovation policy agendas. STIP Compass already explicitly covers several policy priorities and practices directly related to transformative innovation policy. This and other policy data can be analysed to reveal the uptake and distribution of transformative innovation policy priorities and practices over time and across countries. However, web services directed at policy makers, such as interactive dashboards that explicitly provide evidence and guidance on transformative innovation policy agendas and practices, are currently missing. The panel includes presentations from two STIP Compass national contact points, from Portugal and Thailand, who will provide policy perspectives from Europe and the Global South, respectively, on the value and limits of STIP Compass, and how it could be adapted in the future to better serve transformative innovation policy agendas. A third presentation from an early career researcher with deep experience of analysing STIP Compass data will provide an analyst’s perspective.
