REvaluation 2021 – Anticipation – Transition – Resilience

In the last couple of years, European science and innovation systems have been challenged by at least two major developments. First, R&I funding is increasingly designed with a view to supporting societal missions or system transformations. Second, COVID-19 has demonstrated the importance of resilience of science and innovation systems and has questioned hitherto long held views of openness and division of labour in the development of knowledge and innovation.  

This year’s edition of European’s largest R&I policy evaluation conference will respond to those challenges. While primarily asking for conceptual and methodological advances in the field of R&I policy evaluation in its broadest sense, a strong focus this year will be to share and discuss conceptual approaches and experiences to assess and measure the relevance and effectiveness of new R&I policy responses which aim to contribute to transformation and resilience. This is especially important – and challenging – as such R&I policies are mostly still at experimental stage.

There is thus great uncertainty about which R&I interventions will work how and which rebound effects they may trigger. A clear instrumental toolbox is currently not in sight. These developments also challenge the field of evaluation: new policy questions require new evaluative approaches, new methods and new indicators, for which data are often very difficult to collect.

Evaluative conversations: translating between diverse stakeholders in regional RRI projects 

The University of Bergen, the lead partner of the work package on Monitoring and Evaluation within TRANSFORM, has contributed to the abstract prepared jointly by SwafS-14 projects on territorial RRI – issues, tensions and lessons learned in monitoring and evaluation practices of nine H2020 projects. Presented by Tjitske Holtrop and Anestis Amanatidis of CWTS Leiden, the talk “Evaluative conversations: translating between diverse stakeholders in regional RRI projects”  will take place on 5 May from 10:30 to 12:00 within the session on Regional Innovation.  

The REvaluation 2021 Conference is jointly organised by Fraunhofer ISI, IFRIS and the Austrian Platform for Research and Technology Policy Evaluation.
