The OECD Directorate for Science, Technology and Innovation (STI) published a policy report on the “Reference Framework for assessing the scientific and socio-economic impact of research infrastructures” in March 2019. This report aims to evaluate the achievement of scientific and socio-economic objectives in a realistic way by providing funders, decision-makers and RI managers with a generic and versatile tool which is based on current community practices. The framework can be adapted for different types of RIs and different stages in the RI lifecycle. This tool should facilitate the communication and reporting between different RI stakeholders, according to OECD.
