Chapter 10: Policy development and strategic implications
Open access

The type of assessment and its objectives differ per type of user - be it universities, governments or funding bodies at the international, national or regional level. Chapter 10 focuses on the potential applications of RII assessment within European policy development, more specifically the importance of incentive systems to steer and boost RII performance within universities. We discuss various possibilities for designing or implementing such systems, framed within the context of European Commission policies and funding instruments.
