Framework of Transformation of Scientific and Technological Achievements Based on Social Physics

Conference paper
Part of the Lecture Notes in Electrical Engineering book series (LNEE, volume 224)


Researchers use different methodologies to analyze transformation of scientific and technological achievements in order to find out its inherent structural mechanism and dynamic model. However, when policy makers are trying to adopt these advanced theories to formulate relevant policies, they more than often encounter difficulties. From the perspective of social physics, this paper conducts an abstractive analysis on the framework of transformation of scientific and technological achievements by reviewing innovation systematic approach and proposes concepts of field, force, and flow in the transformation of scientific and technological achievement system which are composed of knowledge innovation, technology innovation, and management innovation. Under this analysis framework, this paper also proposes a detailed analytical process and evolvement route from theory to policy based on “object-function-interface”.
