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.  

Given the close links between research and evaluation, we wonder about the potential for RQ+ as a framework for evaluation quality assessment, management, and governance.  Could it be a starting place for values oriented evaluation governance?

 

RQ+ has been featured in Nature (the science journal) here.
