Information System on Science, Technology and Innovation

PAID

PAID

The Information System on Science, Technology and Innovation is the instrument to create the database and analysis for the elaboration and monitoring the Spanish Strategy of Science, Technology and Innovation and the National Plan for Research, Development and Innovation.

The Information System follows the criteria approved by the Council for Scientific, Technological and Innovation Policy and will be articulated with the regional Information Systems.

The accomplishment of the criteria and information exchange procedures can be considered like a requirement for the involvement of all the stakeholders who participate in public aids.

The monitoring of the Spanish Strategy for Science, Technology and Innovation will be supported in four instruments:

  • The Spanish System of Science, Technology and Innovation (SICTI).
  • PAID – The Automated Platform of RTDI data that is included within the SICTI.
  • The Network of Public Policies of RTDI that is a forum for information and experience exchange between the national and regional administrations.
  • ICONO – The Spanish RTDI Observatory that is coordinated by the Secretary of State of Research, Development and Innovation, and that together with the specific observatories that exist at a regional level will analyze the tendencies and it will coordinate the necessary results based impact studies and prospective analysis.

PAID is the tool that gathers the RTDI actions in the 18 Spanish public administrations.

Its utilities are:

  • To facilitate information exchange.
  • To foster a more transparent management of the resources.
  • To allow a strategic planning.
  • To coordinate autonomous and national actions, allowing the identification of overlapping or duplications, when this occurs.
  • To be a meeting point for RTDI managers.
