Assunto: Very strange results of the Eurostat’s Innovation Survey

The recent link above says that according to the Eurostat’s Innovation Survey Portugal and Estonia have a remarkable performance and that Spain has a performance below the EU average. However, how much can these corporate based surveys be trusted ?

If the past already showed that its dangerous to trust the results of corporate research (emails below) its even less advisable to trust corporate surveys. Especially when the results of those surveys are very different from country performance on the European Innovation Scoreboard which is based on hard data and even more recent.

Check the link below for the new features that were updated on January 1 of 2019 that allow for fast country comparisons

Assunto: To trust or not to trust ?

Can the research results of a company be trusted if negative results could mean its bankrrupcy ?

Assunto: The dangerous lack of peer-reviewed evidence in healthcare companies with a value above 1 billion

Still concerning the email below I would say that when companies invest billions in research its universities job to check the quality of that very same research. See on this issue an extract below taken from a recent paper co-authored by the well know Stanford Professor John Ioannidis that analyses almost 50 healthcare related unicorns (startups with value in excess of 1 billion) including the notorius case of the 9 billion fraud unicorn Theranos ... 23621.html

“High‐valuation companies that publish little or nothing in the peer‐reviewed literature may still have patents related to their products. One may argue that patents undergo rigorous evaluation. However, patents do not offer the same level of documentation as peer‐reviewed articles. For example, Theranos had over 100 patents, but these were unable to supplant the vacuum in their evidence....when a team of investigators used the Theranos technology to run 22 common lab tests versus the same tests run with other companies’ technologies, the problematic error rates became manifest... ... /eci.13072
