Subject-specific evaluations

The aim of the subject-specific evaluations is to provide a critical review of the Norwegian research system in an international perspective, and to provide recommendations on measures to encourage increased quality and efficiency of research.

The evaluations help to ensure that the Research Council has the necessary information on which to base its strategic research activities and efforts vis-à-vis public bodies. Recommendations and proposals in the subject-specific evaluations are intended to provide a starting point for establishing general measures and scientific priorities. The evaluations also serve as a tool for the institutions themselves in their ongoing efforts to refine their own strategic and scientific framework.
