New KBS Research Event: The Future of Research Assessment – Peer Review vs. Metrics

KBS has announced a series of new research events, known as Kent Business School Debates.

The launch event, which takes place in May 2017, will feature lively discussions around the future of research assessment. All are invited to attend.

In 2015 The Metric Tide concluded that “peer review, despite its flaws and limitations, continues to command widespread support across disciplines” and that “metrics should support, not supplant, expert judgement.”

In an age of galloping technological change and increasing pressure on research funding, the debate will focus on whether this conclusion remains valid.

High-profile speakers who will debate this conclusion include:

The event takes place from 10:00 to 16:00 on Tuesday 30 May 2017, and will take place in The Sibson Building, the new state-of-the-art academic home for Kent Business School on the Canterbury campus.

The event is free to attend and includes lunch and refreshments.
