SIPER: It is a central source of knowledge on science and innovation policy evaluations. Its aim is twofold: (i) to provide on-line access to a unique collection of policy evaluations, located at a single location; and (ii) to allow policy learning by providing an informed analysis of the database contents that is both searchable by policy makers and other stakeholders and which provides the basis for additional academic analysis.
