Metrics of the public research lab performance and strategic behaviour
Nowadays, in Italy the science sector is doing a strategic restructuring due to budget cuts. Thus, the measure and evaluation of research performance of its units (public research institute) is needed. This research uses the discriminant analysis (direct and Wilks methods) for measuring the research performance and evaluating public labs. The results are two canonical discriminant function which are successfully applied to 200 Italian public research institutes belonging to the National Research Council. This functions are also tools for appropriate decisions and actions to improve research productivity within the research labs and could provide indications by the more effective use of existing resources and for reducing the X-inefficiency. Some policy and management implications are discussed.
