Evaluating the impact and outcomes of European SSH research

Evaluating the impact and outcomes of European SSH research

Objective

The main objective of IMPACT-EV is to develop a permanent system of selection, monitoring, evaluation and comparison of the impact and outcomes from European SSH research, taking into account the latest quantitative and qualitative evaluation tools, identifying new ways of implementing them and exploring new standards and indicators that complement existing impact assessment processes. IMPACT-EV will contribute to developing a permanent system of selection, monitoring and evaluation of EU funded SSH research, therefore able to provide insights for the ex-ante, in-itinere and ex-post evaluation concerning assessment of the scientific, policy and social impact of SSH research project outcomes. Scientific impact involves quality of publications, training of young researchers, forms of interdisciplinarity and the constitution of European scientific excellence networks; in policy impact we will focus on EU directives or recommendations, national, regional and local policies; by social impact we understand results of the policies and citizens’ actions based on research evidence in relation to the five EU 2020 targets (i.e. increased employment among 20-64 years old, increased investment in R&D/I, increase in energy efficiency and renewables, reducing dropout rates and increasing third level education, and reducing poverty and social exclusion). In addition, the impacts of SSH research projects on the development of the European Research Area in SSH (e.g. ERA-Nets and of art. 185 initiatives in the domain of SSH, the mobility of researchers and the circulation of concepts across national and disciplinary borders) will be also analysed.
