  • Evaluation of the Impact of Framework Programme Evaluation of the Impact of Framework Programme supported Social Sciences and Humanities Research - A bibliometric approach , EUR 24311, 2010, ISBN 978-92-79-15370-9, doi 10.2777/18202, 58 pages

    The report presents the results of an evaluation study of the impact of Framework Programme supported Social Sciences and Humanities research by means of bibliometric analysis. It covers research carried out under the Socio-economic Key Action of the 5th Framework Programme, and aims to provide a benchmark for the evaluation of the scientific impact of subsequent programmes. On the basis of a structured sample, the study developed a quantitative estimate of the outputs of the programme and then applied bibliometric evaluation methods to the outputs that were amenable to this type of analysis. The study found that the programme was quite successful in producing high quality scientific knowledge in the fields that it addressed and that it was particularly beneficial for female scholars and young scholars.

  • The REDCo project Research on religion-Religion on the move
    Movie produced by REDCO (Religion in Education. A contribution to dialogue or a factor of conflict in transforming societies of European countries) an SSH project funded under the 6th Research Framework Programme. This project focussing on the age group of 14-16 years studies whether religion is a factor of conflict or a contribution to dialogue. To reach teachers but also the wider public REDCO has produced the movie "Research on religion religion on the move" . This movie communicates three aspects of REDCO: First, the research process: the difficulty of finding the right research questions. Second, the movie shows the empirical part of its research: bringing questionnaires into the classroom, videotaping lessons and interviewing teachers. Third, "Religion on the move" presents the main project findings: the optimism of young people to live together despite differences in world views and their solutions. The movie can be downloaded (98MB) for free from the REDCO project website
