Funder Discussion Groups

DORA’s funder discussion groups form a community of practice to consider topics related to fair and responsible research assessment.

Two parallel funder groups — one for the Asia-Pacific region and another for Africa, the Americas, and Europe — meet virtually each quarter. The groups provide a space to discuss new assessment policies and practices with the goal of increasing knowledge-sharing about research assessment reform and facilitating collective action.

If you are a public or private research funder and are interested in joining the group, please reach out to DORA’s Program Director, Anna Hatch ([email protected]). Organizations do not have to be a signatory of DORA to participate.
