How does my research output 'perform' in world-leading citation databases? What are the research strengths of my institute? Are we collaborating effectively and what are our peers elsewhere doing? Is my research socially relevant?

These and many other questions can be answered with responsible analysis and assessment of the academic and societal impact of research via a combination of quantitative and qualitative metrics.

We provide expert advice, training and services to enable the academic community at the University of Groningen (UG) to demonstrate their scholarly impact in grant applications and promotional portfolios. We also conduct research impact studies at research group, department, faculty or institutional level for benchmarking, ranking or strategic purposes. Finally, we assist the academic community in the preparation of reports and figures required by the Standard Evaluation Protocol (SEP).

See the latest version of the document describing the UG principles for responsible research assessment.
