The research environment is not only important but also extremely competitive. There are many challenges that researchers – along with entrepreneurs – face to get excellent outcomes. Every step needs to be well achieved: writing research reports, translating them into policies & practice, and finally generating research and innovation that impacts society in a positive way.
It is essential for research managers to ensure that the research outputs and outcomes of the organization are optimal, and lead to quantifiable impact. Thus, North-West University (NWU), Southern African Research & Innovation Management Association (SARIMA) and WAITRO organize the event “Monitoring Research Performance and Impact”. This Conference will take place on August 1st from 09h00 – 15h30, South Africa Standard Time.
