What Next for ‘World Leading’ UNU-MERIT & ICIS?

“An outstanding contribution to society – world leading,” is one verdict by an independent review committee on the work carried out by the United Nations University – Maastricht Economic and Social Research Institute on Innovation and Technology (UNU-MERIT) and the International Centre for Integrated Assessment and Sustainable Development (ICIS) at Maastricht University, for the period 2010-2015. Drawing on a mix of data, interviews and narrative accounts, the committee of four Dutch and German professors presented their independent assessment in March 2017. The visitation of both institutes was conducted for the VSNU.
