Between art and research: Evaluation of creative arts in performance-based research funding systems (Principal Investigator: Dr Kamila Lewandowska)

Evaluation of the scientific activity of academics has been a focus of many studies, however very few of those studies have taken into account artists working at universities. Art schools, together with other scientific institutions, are subjected to periodic evaluations of research activity, and it is plausible to think that in the field of art, like in other academic disciplines, national systems of research funding have a significant influence on the creative activity of academics. The aim of this research project is to investigate the effects of the Polish system of research evaluation on the creative arts and to identify the criteria of research activity in the artistic disciplines.
