Abstract: ANR is the French national research agency founded in 2005 and responsible for the project-based research funding. As part of ANR’s “open science” initiative, the Agency ensures the circulation of knowledge on public grants by providing data for each funded project in standardized formats to facilitate their broad and easy use. These data provide information on the research funded by ANR since 2005 across all scientific fields. In the present poster, we will first describe the type of data made available to the public which provides detailed information on the projects grants funded by ANR from 2005 to 2017. Using three proof-of-principle examples, we also illustrate how this data could be exploited and investigated, at different levels (institutions, PIs and research themes) to study the impacts of ANR on the national scientific production. In all three examples, results obtained from the ANR database were confronted to similar metrics obtained from external sources, in particular the Web of Science (WoS). Specifically, we identified a main pool of publications by querying the WoS database for all publications in which ANR was acknowledged (closed to 100,000 publications between 2006 and 2018). These examples illustrate how the ANR dataset could be completed by additional resources (e.g. bibliographic databases, European funding, patents data, open archives, ORCID, altmetrics data) to yield interesting results describing research funding and production. As such, dissemination of these data, combined with other research data, and extension, refinements of these analyses should contribute to decipher and enlighten the trends of research, the dynamics of scientific networks in France, in Europe and worldwide.
