Workshop on the Use of Big Data Technologies for Advanced Research Assessment

Are you interested in the innovative ways to measure and monitor research impact?

Data4Impact has developed a series of indicators on the performance and societal impact of 40+ research programmes in the health domain. The project team has achieved this by adopting big data techniques and developing pilot approaches which track the legacy and impact of research activities after the end of public funding. The novel indicators developed in Data4Impact have matured to a point where they can be shown to a wider audience of stakeholders.

In the context of the project, we are organising the Workshop on the Use of Big Data Technologies for Advanced Research Assessment. The workshop will take place on 28 May 2019 at the premises of Ghent University (Ghent, Belgium).

It is important to note that the workshop is part of a two-day event on Research Policy Monitoring in the Era of Open Science and Big Data, co-organised by OpenAIRE and Data4Impact, and supported by Science Europe. The two-day event, taking place on 27-28 May, will aim to explore the forward-looking mechanisms for research policy monitoring and indicators, and how these mechanisms can be linked to infrastructure and services. You are welcome to register for both days of the event. The discussions held by OpenAIRE, Science Europe and the Open TDM community will pool many research funders, policymakers and experts. This will be an excellent opportunity to network with other stakeholders interested in research policy monitoring, including multiple funders in the health domain.
