Measuring Research, Making a Difference
Funders today are more and more conscious of the need to both measure and demonstrate the impact of the work that they fund. However moving beyond simple paper counting to measurement of the wide range of downstream uses is a significant challenge. The workshop will provide a venue for a diverse range of research funders to articulate their needs and desires in being able to track, measure, and quantify the use and re-use of the research that they fund. The development sprint will provide examples of the tools that can be easily built to enable the tracking and measurement of research impact and identify where funders can act to make it easier for researchers and developers to provide evidence of impact.
