The OST has a world-class expertise in research evaluation
OST expertise is based on a team of individuals specialized in the evaluation of S & T activities. Through its association with UQAM Centre interuniversitaire de recherche sur la science et la technologie (CIRST), OST contributes to the advancement of knowledge in this area by creating and improving scientometric indicators, by furthering reflections and conclusions drawn from these indicators and by training new specialists.
Since its funding in 1997, OST supports its clients and partners in the evaluation of their scientific and technological activities. OST develops methodologies tailored to the needs of organizations by first carefully defining the projects’ assessment objectives and by subsequently producing rigorous and robust statistics enabling, for example, the appraisal of an entity’s scientific production or the impact of R & D projects.
