The seventeenth international four-day training on R&D Evaluation will be held on the

The course has a long standing reputation as one of the few truly international courses on
R&D evaluation, which brings together experts from leading institutes on R&D Evaluation
and participants from European and non-European countries. The course offers lectures by
experts, study of case material in small groups and international exchange of experiences. It
is an excellent opportunity to learn about international best practices and the development
in methods and applications of R&D Evaluation. Over 250 staff members from R&D
organizations, young professional evaluators and researchers involved in evaluation from
more than 20 countries have successfully participated in previous editions of the course.
This four-day course is organized by the Department of Science, Technology, and Policy
Studies (STəPS), of the University of Twente. Course directors are Stefan Kuhlmann and
Gonzalo Ordóñez Matamoros. The team further includes lecturers from the Manchester
Institute of Innovation Studies of the University of Manchester, UK; Technopolis, a leading
European consultancy for S&T policy; the School of Public Policy at Georgia Institute of
Technology, Atlanta and the Rathenau Institute, The Hague.
The aim is to provide:
- an introduction and overview of R&D evaluation;
- in-depth discussion of key issues and methods;
- systematic approaches to the design of R&D evaluation;
- insight into the use of R&D evaluation as a strategic policy tool.
