„New Horizons / New Challenges: evaluation of STI policies, instruments and organisations”

one of the largest international STI evaluation conferences in 2013 and the largest one in Austria since 7 years

Bereich: Forschungspolitik & Entwicklung

Datum: 13. - 15. November 2013

The international evaluation conference „New Horizons / New Challenges: evaluation of STI policies, instruments and organisations” provides an open forum for evaluators, scientists, research managers, authorities and STI policy makers to debate challenging developments in STI policy and their effects on evaluation theory and practice.

Eminent experts engage at the conference’s sessions and dedicated panels, such as Irwin Feller (em. Penn State Univ.), Wilhelm Krull (Volkswagenstiftung), Dominique Guellec (OECD), Stefan Kuhlmann (Univ. Twente), Gretchen Jordan (Innovation LLC), Christina Schuh (Humboldt Foundation), Göran Marklund (Vinnova), Jordi Molas Gallart (CSIC – Spanish National Research Council), Sybille Hinze (ifq-Institute for Research Information and Quality Assurance), Jakob Edler (Univ. of Manchester), Philippe Laredo (L’IFRIS), Peter Van den Besselaar (VU University Amsterdam), Erik Arnold (Technopolis) and many more!

More than 200 participants from Europe, Asia and USA are expected to come.

The next generation of STI policy evaluation designs and approaches is challenged by different developments such as the emergence of new demand-side oriented instruments, increasing complexity of appraisals, the demand for impact assessments by taking also non-economic effects into account, an amalgamation between national and European/international interventions in STI or the emphasis on new mission-oriented approaches (“grand challenges”), just to name a few.

The conference addresses these challenges in dedicated thematic sessions:

  1. New approaches for evaluating STI Policies and Instruments
  2. Assessing the variety and long-term impact of research
  3. STI Policy Evaluation in new- and non-OECD Countries
  4. Challenges in assessing new European Research Area polices, programs and instruments
  5. Evaluating for selection – challenges and opportunities
  6. Evaluation practices scrutinized
  7. Evaluation of STI policy portfolios and policy mixes
  8. Data, monitoring systems and indicators
  9. New Developments in Innovation Policy Evaluation
  10. Evaluation of International RTI Programmes
  11. HORIZON 2020: the overall evaluation approach
