Abstract: Aim of this paper is to build a method of performance evaluation for research organization, using a systemic approach that considers the interrelations among activities (administrative, scientific, technologic). The method is based on the research laboratories evaluation (relev) function which is a linear combination of seven indices, two financials, two tacit technological transfer, two bibliometrics and one technological. The relev function summarises quantitative, qualitative and cost aspects, it is simple and emphasizes evaluation of R&D outcomes rather than behaviour. The validity of the relev methodology was tested on the National Research Council Institutes operating in North West Italy.
