Programme evaluation

The Strategic Research Council (SRC) is responsible for assessing the impact of the research it has funded. The evaluation is implemented at programme level. The aim of the evaluation is to assess the current or prospective scientific and societal impact of the programmes and to produce information to support the development of strategic research programmes.

The evaluation focuses on the targeting, processes, outputs and outcomes of the research and interaction activities funded under each programme, as well as their observed or anticipated effects. The review takes into account the specific characteristics of the programmes and projects. In assessing the scientific impact, particular attention is paid to the effectiveness of multidisciplinary work and the ability to reinvigorate research to address the challenges identified in the programme description.

The principles of programme evaluation are available in full in the funding principles of the SRC.
