Event description

Description

Join us in Kent for a lively debate about the future of research assessment.

In 2015 'The Metric Tide' concluded that "peer review, despite its flaws and limitations, continues to command widespread support across disciplines" and that "metrics should support, not supplant, expert judgement."

We will debate - in an age of galloping technological change and increasing pressure on research funding - whether this conclusion remains valid.

High-profile speakers who will debate this conclusion include:

  • Dr Liz Allen, Faculty 1000

  • Prof Eleonora Belfiore, Loughborough University

  • Prof Paul Edwards, University of Birmingham

  • Prof Anne-Wil Harzing, Middlesex University

  • Dr Thed van Leeuwen, Leiden University

  • Prof Loet Leyedsdorff, University of Amsterdam

  • Prof John Mingers, University of Kent

Registration is free and includes lunch and refreshments.
