NORDP Breakfast Briefing: Metrics and Strategies for Measuring Institutional Effectiveness

Setting your research management strategy can be a daunting task. Today's R&D landscape requires research managers to devise better ways to measure the quality and impact of their institution's research projects. Learn how Elsevier Research Intelligence solutions, including SciVal and Pure, can help answer the most pressing challenges that research managers face, with innovative solutions that improve an institution's ability to establish, execute and evaluate research strategy and performance.

In this session, we will highlight some of the new data and metrics being added to SciVal throughout 2016 to help our users demonstrate the socio-economic impact of their research. We will also introduce Pure’s new Faculty Activity Reporting module and demonstrate how to generate reports that show the full spectrum of a researcher’s, research center’s, or department’s academic activities. By unifying all your researcher-related data in one place, reports from Pure can be used to support strategic decisions or to ease the burden of reporting to funders and accreditors.
