Quantitative measurement of knowledge and innovation is one of the most
challenging and promising areas of research in the field of innovation
studies. Plagued by pertinent empirical, methodological and conceptual
challenges, quantitative measurement of knowledge is today advancing rapidly
with easier access to large scale data, cost effective computing, and
availability of advanced text mining software. These novelties have unleashed
a wave of quantitative exploration of knowledge, but pose simultaneously a
serious challenge for our conceptual understanding of knowledge and innovation.
This colloquium discussed series of empirical and conceptual work in the
field, and considered the empirical, methodological, theoretical, as well as
public policy implications of the current and future research with large scale
data in science, technology and innovation. Much of the work presented
investigated detection and mapping of transitions in cognitive and social
structure of innovation systems, as well as emergence of new dynamics, placing
the colloquium in the context of unfolding change in global innovation.
The colloquium took place 12-13 March 2013 and was organized by VTT as a part
of the project “Co-evolution of knowledge creation systems and innovation
pipelines” that investigates transitions in knowledge and innovation systems
and is supported by Tekes - Finnish Funding Agency for Technology and
