Images of collaboration in energy-related Greek research networks

by   Georgios A. Tritsaris, et al.

Fostering technological innovation is intimately related to knowledge creation and recombination. Here, we map research efforts in Greece within the domain of renewable energy technology and its intersections with the domains of nanoscience and nanotechnology with focus on materials, and electrical engineering and computer science by means of a combined statistical and network-based approach to studying collaboration in scientific authorship. We specifically examine the content, organizational make-up and geographic trace of scientific collaboration, how these have evolved over the sixteen-year period 2000-2015, and we attempt to illuminate the processes underlying knowledge creation and diversification. Our findings collectively provide insights into the collaboration structure and evolution of energy-related research activity in Greece and can be used to inform research, development and innovation policy for energy technology.
