Statistics and evaluations
We use statistics on and evaluations of both its own activities and R&D in Norway. We use this to orient our instruments in an appropriate manner and to contribute to knowledge-based advice on research policy issues.
Evaluation activities provide a good basis for determining how to allocate research funding, and for offering guidance on research-related issues within the Research Council itself, to the institutions, and to the authorities. Evaluation activities are designed to enhance the quality, efficiency and relevance of the research sector.
