Evaluation of Research and Development Accomplishments: Northern Forestry Centre

A retrospective, or hindsight, model was used to evaluate impacts and benefits of completed research and development (R&D) at the Northern Forestry Centre (NoFC) over a recent 10-year period. The evaluation included: (1) an inventory of R&D accomplishments in use with estimates of benefits; (2) client (forestry users) validation; (3) management rating of 62 accomplishments; (4) time and cost assessments; and, (5) quantified benefit compilations for a sample of six accomplishments.
