European R&I Policy Evaluation Conference

The largest conference in Europe dedicated to R&I policy evaluation invites submissions of extended abstracts and outlines for posters or multi-media contributions in four focal thematic areas to share methodological advances in R&I policy evaluation and to debate challenges of assessing the transformative relevance and impact of new R&I policies and their implications for evaluation theory and practice. Contributions do not need to refer to only one thematic area but can be cross-cutting.

We strongly encourage academic as well as policy and practice-based submissions. Thus, contributions from policy-makers, R&I councils, R&I funding agencies, policy experts, intermediary organisations, advanced students and academics are highly appreciated! Papers and posters from other policy fields which deal with transformation, sustainability and resilience are explicitly welcomed too!

The conference also encourages contributions with a view on European perspectives as well as contributions from countries outside Europe.

The extended abstracts and outline for posters or other contributions will be reviewed by the Scientific Committee. The selected abstracts and posters are invited to give a presentation or present a poster or multi-media contribution at the conference. We also invite you to submit a full paper for the conference proceedings, which will be published as a special issue of the ‘Journal for Research and Technology Policy Evaluation’. The submission of a full paper, however, is not mandatory and does not affect the presentation.
