The María de Maeztu strategic research program on data-driven knowledge extraction at the Department of Information and Communication Technologies at Universitat Pompeu Fabra (DTIC-UPF) represents an example of the effort at the scale of a university department to design and implement a strategy that promotes a cultural change around the increasingly complex nature of the challenges faced by the expanding ecosystem created around data-driven research.
While high-impact publications remain a key indicator of scientific quality, they are no longer the single output to maximise to remain as a relevant player at the forefront of the field, but it also requires the capacity to:
- contribute to social advancement with a greater purpose;
- generate and use new knowledge in a way that is open, inclusive and relevant for different communities;
- guarantee that both the research objectives, methods and results are ethically relevant and sustainable in the mid-term;
- have the internal agility to adapt to the rapid and continuous transformation of our research environment.
