Position statement and recommendations on research assessment processes
To provide recommendations of assessments ranging from research career progression and the selection of project proposals for funding to the monitoring of ongoing research projects and the evaluation of finished ones.
The recommendations presented in this Position Statement provide a framework upon which research performing and research funding organisations can adapt their assessment processes and collaborate to reduce the increasing strains on the system and tackle the challenges faced. The recommendations also contribute to the task of future-proofing assessment processes for the broad changes to the research system that are underway. Potential improvements of assessment processes continually arise, and are increasingly facilitated by technological advances that can support the further adaptation of the system.
