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.
