  • 1. Meeting with Universities´ vice presidents for research December 12, 2011. National Press Club. Washington DC. STAR METRICS Consultation MeetingLattes Platform and Brazilian ST&I Information Systems Initiatives Roberto Pacheco Stela Institute and Federal University of Santa Catarina (EGC) José Salm Jr. Stela Institute and Federal University of Santa Catarina Marcelo Domingos Stela Institute
  • 2. Introduction • Instituto Stela Knowledge Engineering Research Institute • EGC – Graduate Program on Knowledge Engineering and Management - UFSC
  • 3. Lattes Platform Project When and why Lattes was built 1997 - The national electronic forms were important for agency funding operation, but unsuitable to decision making. Source: ScienTI presentation, 2002 about Lattes history
  • 4. Lattes Platform Project What it is Lattes is the national platform to provide information services to researchers, students, institutions and research groups. • honors Cesar Lattes, -meson co-discoverer • managed by CNPq - the National Council for Science and Technology www.cnpq.br http://lattes.cnpq.br
  • 5. Lattes Platform Project What it offers It has several connected components: Lattes CV Personal ID, education background, professional activities, production in SCT&I R&D groups Project and grant Researchers, research submissions area, cooperation Organizational structure Directory of Decision making services Planning (ST&I Statistics) institutions Evaluation Organizational structure Public access to information
  • 6. Main characteristics of Lattes Free admission Alignment with Any person can enroll and add his or her other e-Gov initiatives CV information ex. Innovation Portal, Coleta CAPES “Mandatory” Registration on Lattes is required in Unique identification order to apply for funding. It is now a for researchers (ready for ORCID) common practice within the National ST&I system funding agencies Public access Data Interchange standards To data and services Defined in collaboration with universities and other S&T Agencies Privacy policy No personal information is made available Data Governance through the Internet DOI, Audit reports of false information and mostly by social control Localized (11 other countries) Interoperability and data Lattes was developed in three Languages extraction (Portuguese, Spanish and English) Lattes interacts with 132 institutions
  • 7. Lattes Project Platform Acceptance More than 2 million of CVs (Hits and Updates) (only 20% from grant processes) More than 400 research groups Daily hits - Average (2007-2010) 120.000 100.033 Daily updates – Average 100.000 93.697 (2007-2010) 11.500 77.731 11.129 80.000 Number of Hits Number of CVs Updated 67.967 11.000 10.521 60.000 10.500 10.052 40.000 10.000 9.720 9.500 20.000 9.000 0 2007 2008 2009 2010 2007 2008 2009 2010 Year Year Source: CNPq, 2011

  • 9. Finding expertise in a particular scientific domain
  • 10. INCT (2008)How Lattes can help to manage ST&I processes Ministério da Ciência e Tecnologia
  • 11. National Institutes of Science and Technology Program Objectives To promote the articulation and integration, through the establishment of networks among the best research groups and individuals in the country, in priority areas; To promote internationally competitive scientific research; To promote high quality science and technology development associated with potential market applications in cooperation with the private sector; Contribute to the improvement of education standards at all levels, mainly in the preparation of young scientists; To promote the implementation of laboratories to be jointly used by universities and companies Ministério da Ciência e Tecnologia
  • 12. National Institutes of Science and TechnologyData obtained from Lattes Platform CVsAnalysis done by services provided by Innovation Portal Snapshot 3 2011 Snapshot 1 2008 Ministério da Ciência e Tecnologia
  • 13. National Institutes of Science and TechnologyData obtained from Lattes Platform CVsAnalysis done by services provided by Innovation Portal Snapshot 3 2011 Snapshot 1 2008 Ministério da Ciência e Tecnologia
  • 14. Being used by universities and Research Institutes. R&D institutes use the Lattes CV as a source to strategic planning: • carrier planning • competence management • organizational memory • research content management • expertise location
  • 15. Past and the new trends Original Lattes scenarios (1999…) Current Trends Problems Problems • Individual information research burden • Individual and networking R&D • Agency lack of information • Accuracy from information burden • Lack of institutional collaboration • Public partnership Technology Technology • GUI • Touch UI, Mobile (next-gen) • Data Center • Cloud • PC • App Stores • CMS • Social Media • Database exchange • Interoperability Public managers view Public managers view • Governmental control • Public Governance
  • 16. AquariusPlatformPublic Governancein ST&IWe are now building anational platform thatcombines all ST&I instrategic decisionmaking and publicgovernance.
  • 17. Final remarksPast: Lattes began as a response to governmental information needPresent: o It turned out to be the main source of ST&I information (used by Federal Agencies, State Agencies and Universities) o It enabled the development of other national initiatives (Innovation Portal, DCVISA, SINAES, DCSIBEA, Aquarius and many others) o It has been a reference for international cooperation among governments, institutions and researchers (ex. ScienTI)Future: The current trends in technologies and public governance allow us to consider several other scenarios of how to build a national database.
