International endorsement of the philosophy behind Recognition & Rewards

UM signs European agreement for research assessment reform

During the European Research and Innovation Days on 28 and 29 September, UM joined 50 other knowledge institutions in signing the Agreement on Reforming Research Assessment. Drafted by the European Commission, the European University Association and Science Europe, the agreement focuses on implementing a more effective, efficient and inclusive research system. It can also be taken as a sign of broad international endorsement of the philosophy behind the Recognition & Rewards programme recently established in the Netherlands. This programme set in motion a number of changes in how research is assessed; changes that are now being picked up and implemented elsewhere too.
