The second set of bootcamps for creating the roadmap was arranged in February 11th and 17th. Bootcamps were held via Zoom and by using Mural platform.

BOOTCAMP 1 focused on the diversity of practices and activities, outputs and actors that guide the evaluation of research and researchers, through e.g. incentives and policies. BOOTCAMP 2 focused on qualitative and quantitative methods and metrics supporting responsible assessment and measurement of research and researchers.

We thank all the participant for lively discussions and a nice atmosphere!
