Centre for Research Quality and Policy Impact Studies (R-Quest)
Quality in research is a highly prioritized, but also a much debated issue in research policy. The Centre for Research Quality and Policy Impact Studies (R-Quest) constitutes an 8-year commitment to explore the nature and mechanisms of research quality. The centre will address three closely related questions:
- What is research quality? How are notions of research quality negotiated, established and practiced, and what are the mechanisms through which these notions affect policy?
- What are the drivers of high quality research, and what is the role of policy in developing outstanding research?
- What are the effects of high quality research on the society?
The Center is funded by the RCN FORINNPOL initiative.
