NWO - International conference on global research assessment and peer review
The global research assessment and peer review system is slowly stretching to its limits and researchers everywhere are affected by this development. One of the problems is an ever increasing number of applications (not paralleled by an increasing amount of funding), resulting in turn in an increasing amount of necessary peer reviews. To address these challenges and join forces to explore alternative ways of dealing with them, NWO will host an international conference. This meeting is primarily aimed at participants from European research councils. In addition, we will invite other granting organisations that are dealing with similar issues, as well as researchers and peer reviewers.
