Introduction

This is the official website for the National Science Foundation (NSF)-sponsored Industry/University Cooperative Research Centers (/IUCRC) Program Evaluation Project. It provides detailed guidelines, procedures, instruments and other resources for local evaluators involved in the I/UCRC evaluation. For local evaluators : Please see contact information if you need clarification on anything contained on this website. For all others : While these materials are intended for use by NSF I/UCRC evaluators, we have not copyrighted our questionnaires and welcome others to use them. However, we would appreciate you contacting us if you choose to do so.

The Goals of the I/UCRC Evaluation Project are:

Primary

1) To help NSF and local centers objectively evaluate their impact by documenting I/UCRC outcomes and accomplishments

2) To promote continuous improvement by giving actionable, timely, data-based (formally collected and observational) feedback, analysis and advice to NSF and local centers;

3)To identify and communicate information about I/UCRC best practices to NSF and local centers;

Secondary

4) To help promote a better understanding of industry-university-government research cooperation.

For more information on the evaluation activities, please see the evaluation primer.
