Ingeborg Meijer, PhD

Ingeborg Meijer is a part-time researcher and leader of the working group SURe (Society Using Research) at the Centre for Science and Technology Studies (CWTS) of Leiden University in the Netherlands. Her research focuses on the societal use of research, especially the development of proxies, tools and indicators, to help in research assessment purposes. The working group takes a data-driven approach (exploring altmetrics) and a qualitative approach investigating researcher and stakeholder visions and values. Ingeborg has a PhD in biomedicine from the University of Leiden, and worked subsequently in a biotech company (Celltech), in health research policy (RGO), and in European science innovation and technology policy evaluation (Technopolis Group) before returning to academia.
