ICONO is the Spanish R&D Observatory promoted by FECYT and represents one of the main R&D indicator producers in Spain. This R&D Observatory offers specialised information and tools such as:

  • R&D indicators on the evolution of science and innovation in Spain, grouped into families such as investment in R&D, high technology, transfer, internationalisation or scientific culture.
  • Policies and strategies in the field of scientific research, technological development and innovation at the Spanish level (state and autonomous), the European Union and the OECD.
  • Calls and results financed through public R & D & I projects, with access to the subscription in alerts and calls of the FECYT.
  • R&D Map institutions with which to locate the essential information of the organisations that carry out R + D + i in Spain.

In addition, it promotes initiatives such as PITEC, Technology Innovation Panel: a panel-type database with statistical information, which allows monitoring of the technology innovation activities of Spanish companies, the result of a joint effort with the National Statistics Institute ( INE). Furthermore, as a specialised observatory, it is related to national open science, technology and innovation information systems.

In #MoocVT you will find the #Open_tools section, where you can discover more specialised tools for technology intelligence and monitoring available to everyone, as well as learning resources and exercises to take advantage of the potential of R&D indicators for technology intelligence.
