Welcome

In the framework of the Swiss University Conference (SUC)  programs Mesurer les Performances de la recherche en sciences humaines et sociale (Measuring research output in the humanities and social sciences) and  Performances de la recherche en sciences humaines et sociales (Research performances in the humanities and social sciences), Swiss universities have launched a variety of projects to explore how the both the quality and the impact  of research in the humanities and social sciences can be made visible and to explore new ways of evaluating the SSH. The programs developed methods and instruments to present a tangible overview of research quality beyond the realm of a given discipline. Parallel to this undertaking is the objective to strengthen these instruments within the universities and facilitating decision-making processes.
