Research Evaluation Group

Ingenio's research evaluation team investigates methods to assess the diverse contribution of research, with a special focus on the socio-economic impact of research and the processes of knowledge exchange among researchers and stakeholders. A unique characteristic of Ingenio's evaluation is the combination of qualitative and quantitative research methods. In particular we have expertise in interview techniques, survey design and analysis and quantitative analyses, including scientometrics and econometrics. The team collaborates with major centres in research evaluation including CWTS (Leiden University), Rathenau Institute, SPRU (University of Sussex) or the School of Public Policy (Georgia Institute of Technology), and leading experts such as Barry Bozeman (Arizona State University) and Nabil Amara (Laval University). The team is led by Jordi Molas-Gallart, editor of the journal Research Evaluation, and chair of the Science Europe Working Group on Research Policy and Programme Evaluation.
