Impact Evaluation of FAPESP's Programs

FAPESP is engaged in evaluating the multidimensional impacts of its programs and instruments. In the past decade several programs have been evaluated measuring scientific, technological, economic, and social impacts.

This page presents reports, articles in journals and other documents presenting the methodologies and results of the evaluations already implemented. It also provides links for documents from other funding agencies and for events related to evaluation of STI activities.
