The OSIRIS blog is now launched. Here we write shorter dissemination and opinion pieces about impact of research based on our activities within OSIRIS. The first blog post is from Richard Woolley and Nicolas Robinson-Garcia. They go behind the evaluation results from the UK to discuss what the weak but positive correlation between excellence and impact means.
What are the experiences with impact case studies? We invite you to a seminar to discuss impact cases in research evaluations at NIFU November 1st, 14.00-17.00
