BiographyJordi Molas Gallart is a Research Professor at the Spanish National Research Council (CSIC), and Director of INGENIO (CSIC-UPV), a joint research centre of CSIC and the Polytechnic University of Valencia. INGENIO is the leading Spanish centre in the study of research and innovation processes, with a staff of some 40 researchers and support staff. Jordi's research focuses on the evaluation of science and technology policies. He has led and contributed to many research projects for a wide variety of organisations, including the UK Medical Research Council (MRC) and the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC), the French and British ministries of defence, INSERM, the Joint Research Centre of the European Commission, and the Russell Group of British universities among many others. He has been a member of many European Commission expert groups, and chaired the Science Europe working group on Research Policy and Programme Evaluation and was editor of Research Evaluation, a journal published by Oxford University Press, between 2013 and 2020. Within TIPC Jordi works on developing and implementing the Consortium’s approach to evaluation. Evaluation is a key concern of many of the organisations that conform TIPC but the dominant approaches to STI policy evaluation do not fit the systemic objectives and inclusive philosophy that characterises TIPC. TIPC is implementing a novel set of approaches to innovation policy and this need to be accompanied by evaluation strategies that are aligned with the Consortium's principles and tools.
