Towards a Transformation of Research Assessment in Latin America and the Caribbean (virtual event)

28 October 2020
14:00 – 16:00 CET

The Latin American Council of Social Sciences (CLACSO), an academic network created in 1967 and today gathering 680 research centers in 51 countries, is inviting the scientific community to share views on principles and recommendations for research evaluation, recently drafted by the Latin American Forum for Research Assessment (FOLEC- Foro Latinoamericano sobre Evaluación Científica), which has already received contributions from a consultation within Latin America.

In this international consultation, global participation will help better understand the diverse perspectives and better insert the Latin American debate on research assessment in the context of other initiatives and debates worldwide contributing in the review process of research evaluation and its indicators.

The meeting will make an introduction to some of the challenges in social sciences and humanities research assessment in a developing region and share a summary of the documents and feed-backs received, and then the main part of the meeting will be an open discussion with participants.
