Research Evaluations

In February 2007, the Research Council of the University of Antwerp decided to implement a discipline-specific 8-year cycle of research quality assessment during which two disciplines are evaluated each academic year. These research assessment exercises are in accordance with the methodology laid out in the Dutch Standard Evaluation Protocol.

During site visits at the University of Antwerp international peer review panels assess:

  1. the quality;
  2. the productivity;
  3. the societal engagement and impact;
  4. the viability.

of the research carried out by the units belonging to the discipline under assessment.

Additionally, the panel formulates a number of suggestions to the faculty, research council or university board on how to better organize the research.

The research units meticulously prepare these site visits by drawing up self-evaluation reports.
