In episode 1 we listen to the opening remarks of the REvaluation Conference 2022, explaining how RTI policy evaluation and transformation can work together. Fittingly, we let you listen to Luke Georghiou’s keynote speech on how the University of Manchester is trying to embed the UN Sustainable Development Goals into its development strategy and what that means for performance in traditional rankings.
