Science Foundation Ireland takes an iterative approach to develop a narrative CV

The Dutch Research Council, Science Foundation Ireland, Swiss National Science Foundation, and UKRI are all experimenting with narrative CV formats as part of their evaluation of grant proposals. At DORA’s virtual funder discussion on September 23, 2020, Rochelle Fritch and Laura Mackey presented Science Foundation Ireland’s (SFI) ongoing work to develop a narrative CV format for its funding mechanisms.

Communication is an important mechanism to increase the uptake of responsible research assessment practices at universities and funding agencies. To help, DORA brings together public and private research funders for a virtual meeting each quarter to discuss new policies, practices, and pilot experiments for assessing research. On Thursday, June 25, 2020, Claire Fraser, senior policy advisor at Research England and Greg Tananbaum, director of the Open Research Funders Group (ORFG), provided updates on their latest efforts to improve research assessment.

DORA launched a new virtual discussion series for public and private research funders on Wednesday, March 26. The goal of the series is to increase communication about research assessment reform by providing a space for funders to share and discuss new initiatives. We hope this will ultimately serve as a platform to accelerate the spread of good research assessment policies and practices.
