Abstract

This research presents a new metrics to measure and assess the scientific performance of public research institutes, which improves models based on standard multivariate techniques. These models called Research Lab Evaluation (RELEV) adjusted are successfully applied to Italian public research institutes, operating in five scientific fields. In addition, the paper presents a comparison between this method and the Data Envelopment Analysis to show some analogies and differences in the results.
