2019 EUA Workshop on Research Assessment in the Transition to Open Science

Research Assessment for Researchers’ Recruitment and Career Progression

14 May 2019 Time: 09:00 To 18:00

EUA is organising a series of workshops raising awareness and fostering discussion on research assessment reform. The 2019 edition will focus on research evaluation for the purpose of recruitment and career progression of researchers.

Researchers, research funders, research performing organisations and policymakers, including the European Commission and its Open Science Policy Platform, are increasingly concerned over the dominance of journal-based metrics in research assessment and its negative effects. As a result, they are starting to engage in discussions on more accurate, transparent and responsible approaches to research evaluation.

As part of our commitment in the EUA Roadmap on Research Assessment in the Transition to Open Science, the series of workshops will raise awareness and foster discussion by introducing key issues related to research assessment reform. The 2019 edition will focus on research evaluation for the purpose of recruitment and career progression of researchers. Participants will have the opportunity to meet and discuss innovative practices, as well as reflect on a concerted approach to the reform process

The event will be of interest to institutional leaders (rectors, vice-rectors and heads of administration), research department and library staff and researchers, as well as representatives of other stakeholders involved in research assessment reform.

Registration will open in February.

EUA has opened a call for contributions to a series of workshops on research assessment in the transition to Open Science, see more information
