The purpose of the evaluation is to analyse a unit’s strengths and weaknesses and to enable it to position itself better within its scientific and geographical environment. It also gives the unit’s supervising bodies all of the necessary information for decision-making. Lastly, it provides the department for the evaluation of institutions with information for performing an overall analysis of the unit’s research strategy.
What you need to know
- The analysis of the unit focuses on its scientific production, its appeal and socioeconomic integration, its strategy and the assessment of its plan. These four items are scored according to a four-point scale: A+, A, B and C.
