Evaluation of the ISSP UL in the Research Assessment Excercise

11.04.2014

‘This institution is one of the best - arguably the best institution evaluated by Panel M. It has all the qualities to continue its role as the leading centre of Latvian research in material science. Securing funding for the Institute should be of highest priority for the Latvian Government and Latvian research funding agencies’, the conclusions and recommendations made by expert panel for ISSP UL

On 26 April 2011, the Cabinet of Ministers of the Republic of Latvia adopted a decision (Protocol No 27, §29) regarding the need to conduct an external assessment of the implementation of the science and innovation policy in Latvia in 2011/2012, in order to perform the necessary measures for the implementation of structural reforms in science and to ensure well-founded strategic planning of the future cohesion policy of the European Union.

An assessment was performed by Technopolis group. Methodology of the assessment can be found here .
