IAP is welcoming nominations for experts in the assessment and evaluation of research projects and researchers from diverse technical backgrounds and geographic regions for a planned study on research evaluation. This study will examine the strengths and weaknesses of current practices in advancing the global research enterprise, explore the feasibility and merits of possible alternatives, recommend specific steps and best practices to be adopted by stakeholders, and foster a global dialogue to raise awareness and catalyze change.
Working Group members should be willing to guide the project development strategy, assist with project implementation, and support communication and implementation within their region and area of expertise. They will be expected to attend international working group meetings and workshops as well as occasional conference calls.
If your academy would like to nominate an expert to this working group, please contact Nina Ward to request a copy of the call for nominations from the IAP for Research co-chairs, the study proposal on “Strengthening Research Evaluation: A Global Assessment and Dialogue,” and the nomination form.
Nominations are due by 2 November 2018.
