The National Innovation Office’s (NIH) scope of activities are going to broaden probably from spring as the Science and Technology Observatory starts its operation, Dr. György Mészáros, president of the NIH announced at the meeting of the Parliament’s Innovation and Development Committee on 28th March.

The aim of the Observatory is to support the governmental and the entrepreneurial sphere with up-to-date information from the field of research, development and innovation. An informatics system is going to be developed which makes possible to create a new, more precise and more expedient databases. The claim of the formation of the Science and Technological Observatory was expressed by the New Széchenyi Plan’s (ÚSzT) Science-Innovation Programme. The observatory helps the government’s and enterprises’ (first of all the small and medium-size enterprises) strategic planning and decision making by operating an extensive professional information centre.

The observatory makes analysis based on strategic monitoring for the innovation-policy. The first prosperity report based on this method is ready by April. Beside that the datas collected by the observatory are going to be accessible to the characters of research, development and innovation (RDI) policy as well (so to the enterprises working in the economic sphere too). The developed informatics system stores the data’s of the RDI sector. This makes the dynamical data-filtering possible and provides a structural database-knowledgebase function through the usage.

The president of the NIH added by answering to a question of an MP that the NIH runs from 1.2 billion forints and it does not contain the tenders’ sources.
