Metrics for public research institution contributions

Metrics for public research institution contributions to the economic health of their communities is a central topic among reserch institutions and state governments.

The Association of University Technology Managers (AUTM) has designed a draft proposal for metrics to describe and assess the ability for a given research institution to make an impact on the community and economy. Institutions define  their goals and communities differently, so while all institutions would answer the same questions, the answers may not be directly comparable. However, an expectation for these measures should be to allow institutions identifying their own goals within a reporting of these metrics to provide community members better information and context through them, and whatever ancillary information an institution would provide.

The 2010 CLAIU -EU Conference will have as its principal focus, the structure and curriculum of Engineering Master Degree programmes in European universities. As the provisions of the Bologna Declaration become increasingly embedded both in European higher education and in many countries worldwide, it is important that we are all informed on how it is being implemented in engineering programmes.

This CLAIU -EU Conference will provide delegates with the opportunity of familiarising themselves on current developments.The CLAIU -EU Conference is organised in collaboration with the Royal Military Academy and the Association Royale des Ingénieurs Civils issus de la Faculté Polytechnique de l’Ecole Royale Militaire.
