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.
The event is open only to EUA members. Please consult here if your institution is a member. Registrations will close on 1 May.
We aim to ensure that all members who desire to attend the event can participate. However, in order to guarantee a regional and institutional balance, we may have to restrict attendance. Priority will be given to those who register early. Additional registrations will be placed on a waiting list once the event is full, even if this occurs before the registration deadline.
The call for contributions is now closed. For any questions, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
