New frontiers in evaluation of impacts of medical research

International Workshop 2009

Both politicians and funders are now facing increasing demands for follow-up of investment in research. In May 2009, the Scientific Council for Medicine brought together representatives of universities, funders, decision-makers and evaluators to discuss development and challenges in the field concerning how to measure the benefit of investments in medical research.

There is great international interest in identifying better ways of measuring the benefit of investments in medical research. The documentation summarises the main features of the different lectures and suggestions on how research findings can be measured.
