Charlotte Guillard will present a paper, co-authored with Mariana Mazzucato, introducing a new empirical framework that aims at improving the measurement of public value in space, and in particular the contribution of the European Space Agency (ESA). The empirical framework combines several methodologies relying on patent data to measure different dimensions of ESA's contribution to value creation: technological diversity, technological leadership and innovation spillovers.
