Research Quality Assessment

The Italian National Agency for the Evaluation of Universities and Research Institutes (ANVUR) oversees the national quality evaluation system for universities and research bodies. It is responsible for the quality assessment of the activities carried out by universities and research institutes, recipients of public funding. It is also entrusted with steering the Independent Evaluation Units’ activities, and with assessing the effectiveness and efficiency of public funding programmes or incentive programmes for research and innovation activities.

The Research Quality Assessment exercises (VQR) aim at evaluating the research outcomes of public universities and research institutes (as well as those of private institutions that voluntarily submit their research outcomes for evaluation).
