Research and innovation support services are an integral aspect of supporting research and education at universities across the world. These key support functions help researchers to secure the funding needed for research, but also work to enhance research competitiveness and to generate value from research activities. Many international universities use metrics and key performance indicators (KPIs) to measure and evaluate the quality and standard of performance of these support functions. However, among the Nordic universities, a standardized approach to using metrics and KPIs has not been adopted. As a result, universities are coming under pressure from different sources (e.g. ministries, research financiers or other political agencies) to report on the value and significance of their efforts without the benefit of an accepted and standardized approach.
The NUAS Research and Innovation Group would like to facilitate a discussion toward a common understanding and approach which, on the one hand, takes into consideration the Nordic setting and, on the other hand, establishes a common understanding of metrics and KPIs which lends itself to benchmarking performance quality across different organizations.
Participants should be those who work with university research and innovation support within the Nordic region, including heads of innovation and research support services, as well as Technology Transfer Offices (TTOs) and innovation offices.
