National and International Initiatives Discussion Group

DORA’s national and international initiatives discussion group is a community of practice to increase knowledge sharing for research assessment reform and facilitate collective action on areas of common interest.

The group meets quarterly by Zoom providing a space for national and international initiatives to learn from each other’s ongoing efforts to improve the ways research is assessed. It also offers opportunities to make connections with like-minded organizations and to collaborate on projects or topics of common interest. Meeting agendas are shaped by participating initiatives and the topics important to them.
