Academic evaluation is at the core of how and on what we work, how we structure our career, how we treat each other, and indeed academia as a whole.
Currently, academic evaluation is neither fair to academics, nor supporting unexpected scientific breakthroughs; it favours scientists in established work environments and fosters high-quantity, instead of high-quality, research.
By introducing a visual academic profile, ProAc is an attempt at enabling objective and inclusive academic evaluation and supporting diverse talent, inclusive work environments, and scientific progress. Too good to be true?! – I don't think so.
