Abstract
Research evaluation has emerged as a -rapid growth industry¿. Every four years more than 10 billion Euros are allocated to research projects by the European Commission through Framework Programmes. During the last ten years a large number of research projects have been addressed to evaluate other projects. However, some evaluation projects do not take a global view of the project results. The evaluation of research projects in the field of transport should be ¿quantified` as follows: Research activities (¿outputs`, books, conference papers); Research community and society; Contributions to the research culture. In this paper a methodology to evaluate research projects in the field of transport was developed, to measure the effectiveness of European transport research projects during the Fifth (1998-2002) and Sixth Framework Programme (2002¿2006). The methodology begins with a selection of projects to be evaluated against a selection of indicators based on the reference framework of European Countries depending on the ¿fitness for purpose` regarding transport research projects during the Fifth and Sixth Framework Programme. A multicriteria analysis was applied and the analysis was divided in two parts: rank order and flag model. In fact, the combination of both methods within an integrated framework of analysis can achieve more satisfactory results. The use of our methodology enhances the level of flexibility for the decision making process. The results are divided into two parts: rank and flag model; each of these parts is evaluated disaggregated into four indicators groups. Our main findings are: ¿ The methodology offers a set of techniques for decision-makers in order to analyse the acceptability and priority of choice possibilities in the case of qualitative or mixed data.
