Profile

Dr. Gaston Heimeriks is Assistant Professor at the Department of Innovation Studies, Copernicus Institute, Utrecht University. An interdisciplinary academic by choice, Heimeriks’ efforts focus on improving our understanding of the world's complexity arising from the co-evolutionary development of knowledge, economy and institutions. 

Gaston is currently elected member of the Executive Committee of the Eu-SPRI Forum (European Forum for Studies of Policies for Research and Innovation). He is also member of the Program Committee for STI 2017 – Science, technology and innovation indicators conference and Editor of the Innovation Studies Utrecht (ISU) Working Paper Series.

He has many years of experience as a researcher and policy advisor on science, technology and innovation. A common theme in his work is the understanding and governance of scientific, technological and social change in the information society. His tools include the analysis of publication and patent data, the development of new methods and metrics that make visible hitherto neglected aspects of innovation 

He has published on topics such as evolution of knowledge, foresight, ICT methodologies, indicators, new modes of knowledge production and research policy.

Gaston Heimeriks

Dr. Gaston Heimeriks has many years of experience in science, technology and innovation studies. A common theme in his work is the understanding and governance of scientific, technological and social change in the knowledge based economy. He has published on topics such as foresight (Warnke & Heimeriks, 2008), regional innovation (Heimeriks & Boschma, 2012), the globalisation of corporate invention (Schoen, Villard, Laurens, Cointet, & Heimeriks, 2012), new modes of knowledge production (Heimeriks, Van den Besselaar, & Frenken, 2008; Heimeriks & Vasileiadou, 2008), scientometrics (Heimeriks, Hörlesberger, & Van den Besselaar, 2003; Van den Besselaar & Heimeriks, 2001, 2006), technological innovation (Van Egmond, Brouwer, Heimeriks, & Hekkert, 2012), webometrics (Heimeriks & Van den Besselaar, 2006), evolution of knowledge (Heimeriks & Leydesdorff, 2012; Heimeriks, 2012)and research and innovation policy  (Boon & Heimeriks, 2010).

Key themes

Knowledge is increasingly recognised as drivers of productivity and economic growth, as well as vital resources in addressing societal challenges. Perhaps the single most salient characteristic of recent economic and innovative activities has been the rising reliance upon codified knowledge as a basis for the organization and conduct of socio-economic activities, affecting individual and organizational competencies and the localization of scientific and technological advances. The term ‘knowledge-based economy’ stems from this fuller recognition of the place of organised knowledge in modern societies. This expansion of the codified knowledge base is reflected in an increasing diversity of locations, topics and institutions in knowledge productions.

Quantitative measurements

Gaston Heimeriks is concerned with the quantitative measurement of the codified knowledge base. Scientific communications and patents are extremely well archived, and therefore, we have a wealth of data at our disposal when we study the dynamics of the sciences and science-based technologies. In addition, web based data can provide insights in the production, diffusion and use of knowledge. His research and teaching focuses on the mechanisms governing the evolution of knowledge production. Knowledge production varies in many different ways, according to specific scientific and technological fields, institutional and local context. The study of the dynamics of knowledge is considered as a goal in itself, but is also an important prerequisite to investigate the governance of science, technology and innovation.

Current research themes

Current scientometric research focuses on the worldwide spatial evolution of scientific knowledge production in biotechnology. Current patentometric research focuses on the conceptual and methodological issues of using patents to investigate the structure, dynamics and performance of corporate invention with respect to geographical, technological and sector specific characteristics.
