    Abstract

    Identification of "hot" science and technology research areas within national innovation systems provides strategic, future oriented, intelligence for multiple uses: It signals how responsive research is to emerging "grand challenges" and the like, it allows national policy makers to evaluate emergence of distinct domestic research areas and monitor evolution of research systems, supports the build-up of focused international collaborative research initiatives, helps companies to scout for new sources of knowledge and partnerships, and allows researchers and research organizations to benchmarking their own work, and so forth. The objective of this paper is to develop methodological and empirical perspectives to identify "hot" areas of scientific and technological research and augment existing practices with analysis of geographical sources of knowledge
