R&D Evaluation

Estonian Research Council organises the evaluations of research and development. Evaluation means external evaluation of research and development, which since 2010 is carried out either as a regular evaluation for assessing the level of a field of research, or as a targeted evaluation for developing research policy and for obtaining the information necessary for organising of research and development in a field of science.
