AQU Catalunya joins Coalition for Advancing Research Assessment
As a continuation of its signing of the San Francisco Declaration on Research Assessment (DORA), AQU Catalunya has joined the coalition to further reflection on moving towards a new model of research assessment.
Taking into account the reflections it has been making within its own Research Assessment Commission and Governing Board, AQU Catalunya has joined the Coalition for Advancing Research Assessment (CoARA) so it may participate right from the first in the coalition debates scheduled to start shortly.
This is one more step in the direction the Agency took with its signing of the San Francisco Declaration on Research Assessment (DORA).
All the signatories of the CoARA do so as an expression of their agreement on the need to reform research assessment practices.
AQU Catalunya sees its membership in the CoARA as part of a progressive process to contribute to reflection on how to move towards a new research assessment model, in which results, practices and activities are taken into account to maximise the quality and impact of research.
