On 14 May 2019, the European University Association (EUA) and Science Europe published a statement calling for moving away from current ways of assessing research, and to establish systems that better assess research potential. According to the paper, today the outcomes of scholarly research are often measured through methods based on quantitative, albeit approximate, indicators such as the journal impact factor. The authors underline the need to explore new and improved research assessment approaches, also indispensable for turning these innovations into systemic reforms.
