Evaluation for Encouragement and Evolution to Innovation • Strategy formulation including distinct objectives is most important even if the basic or curiosity-driven research in the university. (2) Ex-ante evaluation including the scenario and roadmap is also very important. (3) Encouragement for the direction of the various collaboration and innovation is extremely important. (4) Evaluation should be performed for the evolution of the research program and projects.
