EPSC Splinter Meeting SMW11: Evaluation FrameworksWebinar
Evaluating the scientific and socioeconomic impact of research activities is becoming increasingly important for securing future funding. This challenge is complicated by the fact that research projects can cover many different types of activities in many different geographical locations, targeted at different audiences.
Using the example of the Europlanet 2024 Research Infrastructure (RI) this workshop looked at how to develop an evaluation framework that can help pull together different strands of activity in a large-scale project. Such strands can involve different types of scientific research, as well as associated outreach and training efforts. Using as a starting point the OECD Reference Framework for Assessing the Scientific and Socio-economic Impact of Research Infrastructures, the session aimed to orient participants to the way that framework has informed the evaluation of Europlanet 2024 RI. Participants were then given an introduction to logic models and their use in evaluation.
