Research and impact evaluation
Individual research projects, large research initiatives and key areas of ESRC policy and research strategy are reviewed by the Evaluation Committee. The backbone of evaluation is peer review and almost all of our evaluation work involves selecting, briefing, supporting and in other ways dealing with peer reviewers.
International benchmarking reviews assess the comparative performance of social science disciplines in the UK.
Economic impact reporting
Assessing the economic contribution from ESRC-funded research and progress in ESRC delivery.
Evaluation of large initiatives
Evaluating the quality and impact of large ESRC research and resource initiatives.
