EUA publishes Roadmap on Research Assessment
EUA, the European University Association, has published a Roadmap on Research Assessment in the Transition to Open Science. According to the association, the main objective of the Roadmap is to raise awareness and support EUA members with the development of research assessment approaches that focus on research quality, potential and future impact, and that take into account Open Science practices, something current research assessment and reward systems typically do not consider.
In its Roadmap, EUA identifies the following objectives for its future work in this area:
- Encouraging the development of flexible, transparent, fair and robust research assessment approaches, rewarding Open Science contributions and taking into account differences across academic disciplines, multidisciplinary research, and fundamental and applied research;
- Promoting flexible, transparent and responsible approaches in the career assessment of researchers, taking into account the different stages of researchers’ careers;
- Supporting European universities and national rectors’ conferences in developing and implementing new approaches for research assessment.
