Regional webinars: Africa/Middle East Session

The consideration of responsible practices in research and innovation must be a fundamental aspect of evaluation processes in this day and age. With that in mind, the SUPER MoRRI project is organising an international event with the central theme: “Evaluation practices of research, and how responsibility is included.” 

The SUPER MoRRI event will be organised first in local sessions, culminating in a global meeting on April 29th at 14:00 – 16:00 CET.  The Africa/Middle East session will take place on April 28th at 14:00 – 16:00 CET. The event will consist of a plenary session with three country-based panel statements about responsible research evaluation practices and small breakout sessions, according to the program presented below.
