Quotations from the panel members

 

« A key recommendation for starting research infrastructures: create a coherent tool that will be useful for the future too »

« Indicators may have a contextual reference to specific countries »

Ute Gunsenheimer                                                                                             

European Spallation Source, Head of the External Relations and EU Project Group

 

« We need to demonstrate impacts based on our objectives. Yet these change along the time. »

«I am happy you came up with this modular approach in the form of pathways. This is the best way how we can report on a variety of impacts »

Jana Kolar
CERIC-ERIC, the Executive Director

 

« Not every research infrastructure is going to have all these impact areas in the same intensity. This is a clear message to share »

«You see the impact as a reflection of the goals of the research infrastructure. We need to find the vocabulary that expresses the goals and values of the disciplines we work with »

Jennifer Edmond
DARIAH-EU, President of the Board of Directors

 

« Research Infrastructures need to translate pathways into policies and strategies”

“You show that impact is complex and can therefore only be assessed by combining various methodologies and approaches »

Florian Gliksohn
Extreme Light Infrastructure Delivery Consortium, Associate, Director – Integrated Organisational Development
