Evaluation of Research

The concept of evaluation of research describes the background, goals and methodology. The faculty passed it on May 7, 2012.

The organizational unites collect their data annually and the Vice Rectorate for Research evaluates the data. Publications, managed third-party funds and qualifications (BA, MA, PhD, Habilitations) are evaluated quantitatively. Other indicators such as collaborations, honours or membership of scientific panels are listed as qualitative factors.

The faculty constantly reviews the concept and adapts it if necessary.

Evaluations, which can also have the content of research in addition to teaching, can be found under Evaluation of Teaching/Further Evaluations. An example of this is the Self-evaluation of the Research Centers (2013).
