It is now 1 month left until the self-evaluations are due 20th of December, and we hear some fruitful sessions have been arranged around the faculties and departments in effort to answer the questions formulated in Appendix 1. This is of course nothing short of music to our ears.
Whilst the self-evaluation phase attribute most of the workload to the researchers and research environments, the RQ20-team continue to work peripherally with several preparatory and informative tasks. For one, the recruitment of the subject- and transversal panels are nearly complete. More precisely, all advisors for the transversal panels have been recruited, leaving only one advisor for the subject panels left to sway. We envisage that our next blog-update will read: all external panels finalised!
What is more, in collaboration with the reference group, the project team have composed an instruction for the subject panels, named Guidelines for panels and panel reports.

The next document we will address is a general Planning Template to facilitate the organisation of the Subject Panel Week in May. This will be distributed to all faculties, via the designated RQ20 faculty coordinator (which will be nominated this Friday, November 22nd ).
Other than that, the RQ20-team have been busy representing the RQ20 project around the University by for instance participating in seminars and Q&A’s, and preparing for the site visits by the transversal- and subject panels next year.
To find out when the site visits take place, follow this link.
Lastly, this week and next, the RQ20-team have been invited to meet with the Deans and Heads of Departments, where we hope to initiate the process towards defining the role of the faculties and departments during the Subject Panel Week in May.
Keep up the great work and let us know if you have any question marks in need of straightening!
