Welcome to The Insider, a podcast about the key issues on Research & Innovation made by the INESC Brussels HUB team.

In this episode we’re focusing on the research assessment reform process that is underway in Europe, driven by the European Commission. This is an issue with major impact in the lives of researchers and research performing organizations alike. The Commission wants to reach an agreement before the summer but there are a lot of open issues still to work on.

So, to help us identifying the main issues at stake and go deeper in the discussion, we welcome Marta Agostinho, Executive Director of EU-Life (the alliance of independent research institutes in the life sciences) and its representative in the European Commission stakeholder group for the agreement on research assessment reform.

We’re also giving you a brief rundown of this week’s top headlines from our Morning Brief newsletter, highlighting the European Executive Research Agency’s statement on tackling gender inequalities, the EU Gender Equality Strategy for 2020-2024, the European Commission suspending cooperation with Russia on R&IINESC’s statement supporting Ukrainian researchers and Ole Petter Ottersen, the President of the Karolinska Institute’s comments on the long-term consequences of European sanctions in Russia.
