Towards a New Concept of Excellence in Research? Report of a Stakeholders' Conference Organised by the European Foundation Centre Research Forum 13-14 October 2014, Warsaw, Poland

by Peter Wrobel

Feb 1, 2015

This report summarises a two-day discussion about research excellence from a conference in Warsaw organised by the European Foundation Centre and hosted by the Foundation for Polish Science. It is not a blow-by-blow account. Rather, it seeks to draw out the main strands of discussion, which as noted herein did not always follow strict agenda items. The rapporteur, Peter Wrobel from Science|Business Publishing, takes full responsibility for this work.
