    Science Europe Study on Research Assessment Practices

    The objective of the study was to investigate ways to ascertain that the research assessment processes and practices of SE member organisations (SE MOs) (as well as a hand-picked selection of external research organisations) are selecting the best proposals for funding and the best researchers in career progression schemes, and are doing so in a fair and efficient manner.

    Major findings of the extensive study are presented in this report, which is guided by the following 3 questions:

    1. What approaches are used to assess and select proposals and researchers in a robust, fair and transparent manner?
    2. What are the challenges that research organisations face during the assessment processes?
    3. What are the current developments in the assessment of research proposals and researchers?
