Lund University's Research Quality Evaluation Project 2020

Programme and registration for RQ20’s Report Launch Webinar!

Lundakarnevalen 2014.


PDF Invitation to RQ20’s Report Launch Webinar (for distribution)

For two years, the RQ20 project has engaged 162 internal unites, 4700+ members of staff, 37 external panels and about 220 advisors around the world in order to delve into, unbox and enhance the future of research quality at Lund University. All the hard work, leading up to this point, by everyone involved has now culminated in a final product; namely the RQ20 report, containing materials and information that pertain to the procedure and result of the project.

The report is divided into three parts that each deal with one aspect of the project. Part I entails the project group’s own statement and reflections about the procedure as well as general summaries of the advice obtained by the external panels, including a summary of the self-assessments from the UoAs. For those who are interested in a more comprehensive account, the two remaining parts contain the reports written by the external subject panels covering the preconditions for research activities (PART II), and by the transversal panels covering more overarching themes (PART III).

The RQ20 report will be presented at a webinar on the 26 March at 15.00-16.15, where the project group and other key persons will present and reflect upon what RQ20 has taught them about Lund University’s long-term capacity to develop and strengthen its position in the world. The webinar also marks the end of the RQ20 project group’s mandate period and the RQ20 report will thereafter be handed over to the University Management who, going forward, will govern its results.

We welcome everyone who wants to join us in this event!
