About the organization
Basic details : The ‘science of science’ is a field of practice that is interested in science and innovation, research ecosystems, and the effective management and administration of research funding. Understanding ‘what works’ in research funding is fundamental to the successful construction of knowledge-based societies and economies. And understanding ‘what works’ is predicated on the ability to measure the impact of research.
Mission : to give participants the opportunity to enhance their skills for the planning and development of assessment studies, to better understand how best to report and implement research impact assessments, and how to use those tools and techniques within their own organizations
Vision : ISRIA will no longer be hosting annual Schools but we hope that others will pick up the baton and continue to develop the capacity and capability for research impact assessment globally. Alumni of the Schools – both faculty and participants – may be able to assist in advising or organising local events.
