Data-driven analysis of research

Being a data-driven organization means using data to make fact-based and proactive decisions. KTH can gain better knowledge of how the organization is meeting its goals, and quickly identify deviations in operations and adjust to work more efficiently. A strong data-driven culture promotes constant questioning and learning by using newfound insights while planning for the future.

Research information

Research information refers to information about KTH's research and the context in which it is carried out. This can include information about researchers and their organizational affiliation, subject matter, and assignments. It may also include intellectual outputs such as publications and presentations, as well as information about projects, project members, funding, and collaborative partners. At KTH, research information includes organizational structure such as department, research group, platform, and center formation. Research data, underlying work materials, and knowledge are not included in research information. You can learn more about managing research data on our research data pages .

Data analysis

Data analysis includes the process of collecting, analyzing, and visualizing data to draw conclusions. These analyses enable decision-making, process improvement, and increased value and engagement. Data analysis ranges from basic descriptive analysis that describes what has happened to diagnostic analysis to find causes. The level of complexity and value creation increases in predictive analysis, which is used to understand what will happen, and prescriptive analysis, which describes how we should act. Data analysis provides great opportunities for new insights.

Many of our analyses and services are based on bibliometric data. Bibliometrics is the statistical analysis of publication data and is used as an integrated part of KTH's quality work. Bibliometric data also provides input to the various rankings performed at the international level and is thus an important instrument for KTH's relevance in the world.

Data-driven monitoring and analysis of KTH reaserch (DAUF) is an ongoing collaboration between the library and the IT department. The purpose of the initiative is to facilitate the monitoring and understanding of KTH's research. The services presented here are developed in dialogue with the Vice President for Research, heads of departments, and researchers at KTH. We are developing services that help school management, researchers, and support staff to better understand KTH's research.
