Transforming the research portfolio for greater impact: methodologies, metrics, and meaning
Building on the success of the 2017 Conference, the 2018 Transforming Research Conference offered the research community a unique opportunity to look at how data and evidence are transforming research policy and strategy. In turn bringing together senior members from diverse stakeholder communities to debate possible futures of methodologies, metrics, and meaning of research evaluation.
So to all who attended the 2018 Conference, thank you for being a vital part in its success and in enabling valuable discussions to occur throughout.
