PR – A Model For Evaluating Food And Agricultural Projects: A Danish Application

In this study the usefulness and scientific quality of research projects is addressed, and a pilot study is executed for 3 Danish food and agricultural research programs. The method developed and implemented addresses these concerns, particularly by employing simple measures and by complementing quantitative analysis with qualitative exercises featuring structured stakeholder interviews. The results of the pilot indicate substantial variation between projects within programmes, and some evidence of size-performance relationships.
