The mobility from the research sector – The Norwegian case 1987 – 2000
AbstractThis report is part of the FAKTA programe of the Norwegian Research Council, more specifically the project “Competences, mobility and value creation”. Together with other reports from this project on ICT personel, on technologist it tries to look at stocks and flows of knowledge in the economy. This report builds upon another report of a more theoretical nature, Hauknes and Ekeland “The mobility of researchers - data, models and policy”, 2001. We deepen the theoretical discussion of that report by starting out discussion the relationship between two aspects of knowledge, tacit and codified. Then we go on to a detailed discussion on how the concept of a research sector is made operational in the Norwegian statistical system. This discussion also includes some discussion on the problems with the register data that we use as the empirical basis for this report. There has been a change of industrial classification, of firm ID numbers, and since these registerdata is still very little used relative to their potential there are some unhappy consequences of these changes that we only can point to, not having the ressources needed to remedy those weaknesses.
