Service Research Frasca3 Manual version6 （OECD 2002） • Research and experimental development (R&D) – Research and experimental development (R&D) comprise crea3ve work undertaken on a systema3c basis in order to increase the stock of knowledge, including knowledge of man, culture and society, and the use of this stock of knowledge to devise new applica3ons.” (OECD 2002 p.20)
social sciences and humani3es • For the social sciences and humani3es, an appreciable element of novelty or a resolu3on of scien3ﬁc/ technological uncertainty is again a useful criterion for deﬁning the boundary between R&D and related (rou3ne) scien3ﬁc ac3vi3es. This element may be related to the conceptual, methodological or empirical part of the project concerned. Related ac3vi3es of a rou3ne nature can only be included in R&D if they are undertaken as an integral part of a speciﬁc research project or undertaken for the beneﬁt of a speciﬁc research project. Therefore, projects of a rou3ne nature, in which social scien3sts bring established methodologies, principles and models of the social sciences to bear on a par3cular problem, cannot be classiﬁed as research. (OECD 2002 p.48)
Why diﬃcult to iden3fy service R&D • Deﬁning the boundaries of R&D in service ac3vi3es is diﬃcult, for two main reasons: – ﬁrst, it is diﬃcult to iden3fy projects involving R&D; and, – second, the line between R&D and other innova3ve ac3vi3es which are not R&D is a tenuous one. …. • Iden3fying R&D is more diﬃcult in service ac3vi3es than in manufacturing because it is not necessarily “specialised”. It covers several areas: technology-‐related R&D, R&D in the social sciences and humani3es, including R&D rela3ng to the knowledge of behaviour and organisa3ons. …. • Also, in service companies, R&D is not always organised as formally as in manufacturing companies (i.e. with a dedicated R&D department, researchers or research engineers iden3ﬁed as such in the establishment’s personnel list, etc.).
How to iden3fy service R&D • “ The following are among the criteria that can help to iden3fy the presence of R&D in service ac3vi3es: – Links with public research laboratories. – The involvement of staﬀ with PhDs, or PhD students. – The publica3on of research ﬁndings in scien3ﬁc journals, organisa3on of scien3ﬁc conferences or involvement in scien3ﬁc reviews. – The construc3on of prototypes or pilot plants (subject to the reserva3ons noted in Sec3on 2.3.4).” (OECD 2002 p.48-‐49)

Findings from RISTEX programs • The research maturity, such as exis3ng academic socie3es, aﬀects research project selec3on as well as poroolio management. • When the research maturity is low, then a research program tends to focus on social issues. As the result, the research project poroolio is managed from problem-‐solving viewpoints. • Even though the research maturity is low, ac3vi3es to link research projects led by the management system has a good poten3al to inﬂuence posi3vely to create strategic research theme from the boqom-‐up research projects.
