Evaluation of STI policies - L. BACH
Complexity : no single method ; multi-interdisciplinarity /quantitative and qualitative; WITH alignment between (implicit or explicit) theoretical basis about which effects are to be evaluated
Guaranteing the scientific value of evaluation methods (Robustness, Repetability, Appropriability, Transparence, Independance of the evaluators, Confidentiality, Sampling…)
Balance between systematic / standardized /simple approaches and exploratory studies
=> systematic : Evaluation vs monitoring, time fit between R&D activity and evaluation, Availability of data, Evaluation “fatigue“, Cost of evaluation
Towards a « good » evaluation system ?
