Practical Seminar Research Evaluation & Assessing Research Quality

Indicators • Impact • Integrity


Evaluating Research Is Challenging

Assessing the quality of research comprises many aspects that need to be taken into consideration. Quite a large number of research outcomes can be measured quantitatively. However, this also leaves room for debate: Are number of publications, citations or doctoral students sufficient indicators for research assessment? What other criteria are useful to measure research outcomes? Yet, the most difficult question remains how to demonstrate the actual impact of research on society.

Effectively Assessing Research

As research results become pivotal for international rankings and external funding, it is crucial to understand how to assess research quality. How can research outcomes be compared across different subject areas? Where to find the right counterparts to benchmark research performance? What tools are available? How can KPI’s assist my organisation in measuring research outputs and outcomes? Deepen your expertise on instruments and methods to evaluate research at our practical seminar.
