Evaluation of Research and Development Accomplishments: Northern Forestry Centre

Evaluation of Research and Development Accomplishments: Northern Forestry Centre <jats:p> Abstract: A retrospective, or hindsight, model was used to evaluate impacts and benefits of completed research and development (R&amp;D) at the Northern Forestry Centre (NoFC) over a recent 10-year period. The evaluation included: (1) an inventory of R&amp;D accomplishments in use with estimates of benefits; (2) client (forestry users) validation; (3) management rating of 62 accomplishments; (4) time and cost assessments; and, (5) quantified benefit compilations for a sample of six accomplishments. A conservative three-to-one benefit-to-cost ratio, over the entire NoFC R&amp;D program costs (including services), for the 10-year period has been identified for the sample alone. The most successful R&amp;D was client-driven, with emphasis on applied R&amp;D and technology transfer. </jats:p> http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Canadian Journal of Program Evaluation CrossRef
