Document Type



Metrics and analytics are becoming indispensable tools for guiding decision-making and resource allocation. That’s why we are all at this conference. However, what happens when the path to innovation veers off the beaten track, to such an extent that metrics don’t capture it? This session will delve into the delicate balance between relying on metrics and fostering revolutionary invention by exploring how research administrators can strategically harness analytics while also nurturing the creative space necessary for groundbreaking discovery.

This thought-provoking session will engage participants in a dialog that considers the unanticipated nature of invention, and how it can be fostered, while simultaneously supporting research agendas that are well understood and validated through analytics. Participants will leave with a sense of how to adopt a hybrid approach that integrates data-driven insights with the cultivation of imagination and curiosity.
