Reflections on working with social movements

Research Quality Plus (RQ+) - Potential for evaluation quality governance?

The Research Quality Plus, RQ+, approach is a novel means of judging the quality of research and innovation. It reimagines what makes for good science and how we might encourage more. In application at IDRC, it has positioned gender responsivity as a non-negotiable component of quality work.
