Impact of R&I policy at the crossroads of policy design, implementation and evaluation
Research, technology and innovation (RTI) policy is more than ever charged with demonstrating societal impact. This raises new issues at all levels of policy design, implementation and evaluation.
This is the largest RTI policy evaluation conference in Europe and is devoted to the challenge of generating, understanding and assessing societal impact through RTI policy. It will discuss new policy rationales and new demands for RTI policy in service of society, reflect on challenges in RTI policymaking triggered by these rationales and demands, and scrutinise what is expected from and delivered by different policy intelligence approaches, in particular impact assessment and evaluation. The conference will take into account current trends which will also become part of the ongoing negotiations on the Ninth EU Framework Programme for Research and Innovation (FP9).
