“Why are you doing the research and what is the impact of that research” is a common and legitimate question that funders ask of researchers and research organisations. Hortgro Science, as a manager of research requires an objective and ongoing measurement tool or a matrix of tools to help quantify the outputs of research conducted. The Centre for Research on Evaluation, Science and Technology (CREST), based in the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences at Stellenbosch University has research evaluation and impact assessment studies as one of the core focus areas. The listed project is part of a process of addressing the identified need.
