The ESRC undertakes evaluations of selected major research and data infrastructure initiatives on a strategic basis as part of broader reviews of priority areas, schemes and thematic areas. These reviews usually assess the scientific quality and economic and societal impact. The reviews examine the delivery and management of initiatives and the extent to which aims and objectives are met, informing future activity such as the design of funding mechanisms and research priorities.
