  • Problem
    • High ranking of universities and research groups, but a lack of innovation in important industrial activities and the public sector
  • Solutions
    • Reinforcement of the link between education and knowledge institutions, businesses and civil organisations
    • Open Access to output of public funded research in NL
    • National Licence for Scientific Journals
    • Valorisation of research output …….> Grey Literature??
grey literature
Grey Literature
  • Definition
    • Papers, reports, technical notes or other documents produced and published by governmental agencies, academic institutions and other groups that are not distributed or indexed by commercial publishers.
  • Problem
    • Many of these documents are difficult to locate and obtain.
  • Solution
    • Depositing the documents in an Open Access repository
    • Recording as research output in a CRIS
    • Evalutation: credits for the researchers for Grey Literature of high quality
evaluation of research
Evaluation of Research
  • Standard Evaluation Protocol (SEP) for assessment of research
    • Common guidelines for the evaluation and improvement of research and research policy, based on expert assessments.
  • Objectives of SEP 2009-2015
    • Improvement of research quality based on an external peer review, including scientific and societal relevance of research, research policy and research management.
    • Accountability to the board of the research organisation, and towards funding agencies, government and society at large.

  • New: strong emphasis on Social, cultural and economic relevance:
    • Societal Quality
    • Societal Impact
    • Valorisation (re-use)
  • Grey Literature
    • Essential part of research output
    • High societal impact
    • Opportunity for valorisation of research output

Evaluating social quality and valorisation
  • ERiC protocol, Evaluating Research in Context
    • Stage 1: mission and compilation of self image
    • Stage 2: profile of the research group (quantitative)
    • Stage 3: stakeholder analysis (qualitative by interviews)
    • Stage 4: feedback and reflection (strategic discussion)
      • Quantitative performance compared with qualitative assessment of users
      • Empirical results compared with mission

Evaluating social quality and valorisation
  • ERiC protocol, Evaluating Research in Context
    • International, interdisciplinary consortium of knowledge institutions supported by the European Commission that aims to develop methods to assess the social impact of research and research funding instruments.
