WEBINAR: Research Assessments that Promote Scholarly Progress and Reinforce the Contract with Society
Together with All European Academies (ALLEA), the GYA is organising a research assessment webinar on 25 November.
This webinar addresses two questions that are central to the conduct of scholarly work: Why do we evaluate output of publicly funded research, and how do we make the evaluation match its purpose?
The event is open to the public and free of charge.
You can read more about the webinar and register here.
Mark your calendars now and return July 2021 for the next round.
