    Abstract

    Formation of research strategy, and synthetic research evaluation based on the proposed strategy have been considered. The importance of a setup of targets and a scenario of the research program to achieve the targets as a part of strategy formation, and the importance of research evaluation consistent with the research strategy are emphasized. Research evaluation should be performed in three aspects - the research progress, the research depth and the research phase. In the individual evaluation aspect, comparison of the research performance with the research strategy framework is essential and synthetic evaluation appropriately composed of deductive inference, inductive inference and abductive inference is recommended. To make the final integrated evaluation, the synthetic method is very crucial. Examples of research unit evaluation at AIST, and the research strategy formation and evaluation of public research organizations in Nagasaki prefecture are compared with the synthetic evaluation method. The method is thought to be a creative activity that can contribute to extract the value of research and accelerate the future evolution of research programs.
