Evaluations of own instruments and research centres

The Research Council initiates evaluations of its own research programmes, initiatives and portfolios, as well of its research centres.

The Research Council conducts evaluations both of specific activities (such as a research programme) and of instruments at a more general level (for example, of all industry-oriented initiatives).

Evaluation of funding instruments may entail a review of an initiative’s scientific content, target achievement, results and impact or whether it is organised in a manner that will achieve the objectives. The Research Council distinguishes between process, outcome and impact evaluations , depending on the purpose of the evaluation.

In addition, the Research Council conducts evaluations of the centres under its own centre schemes and of other research centres. Midterm evaluations of centres under the centre schemes provide useful insights for the centres and are used by the Council to determine whether a centre should receive further funding.
