Circle U. joins the coalition on reforming research assessment

Following the decision of its Management Board, Circle U. responded to the European Commission’s call of January 2022 for organisations to express their interest in being part of a coalition on reforming research assessment.

The coalition brings together organisations who fund or perform research, national/regional assessment authorities or agencies, associations of researchers and other relevant organisations, committed to implementing reforms to the current research assessment system.

This means that Circle U. is committed to contributing to the ongoing work on reforming research assessment, including the preparation of an agreement, its implementation and in other preparatory activities. Individually or via other university networks such as The Guild, our universities have been involved more directly in this discussion. 
The drafting process is led by a team composed of the European University Association (EUA), Science Europe, Dr. Karen Stroobants (in her individual capacity as researcher with expertise in research on research), and the European Commission, which will also act as a facilitator.

In so doing, the drafting team will be supported by a core group representing the diversity of the research community across Europe. All organisations who responded to the call will also be involved in the process.
