Methodologies and metrics are developed in order to measure how applicable, sustainable and productive research is and how it can be applied to economic growth, health, the environment and more. This seminar brings together prominent speakers from academia, government and industry who will share their approaches to research evaluation and the ways they apply to funding and policy decisions.
