In the episode, we talk to Stephane Berghmans, Director of Research and Innovation at the European University Association.
Stephane was in the room as the "Agreement on Reform of Research Assessment" was written, and we expect him to play a key role in the implementation as well.
We talked about how the agreement came about, why it is important - and of course, what happened to diversity in the principles. We didn't agree with Stephane on all things, but big principles are at stake here, so that's only natural - quite the contrary, it made it a great debate on the future of research assessment, the importance and challenges of institutional autonomy, and of course how research managers and administrators can play a role in the implementation.
We trust this will have a major impact in the coming years, so we were happy to get to talk about it from the outset, and this is surely one of the topics we'll follow closely - and we will continue to insist that diversity plays an important role in the implementation.
