Results of the international evaluation of research RAE2013 at Oulu University

The Research Community COACT (Complexity in (inter)action: towards an of understanding of skilled multimodal participation) headed by Elise Kärkkäinen, with Pentti Haddington and Leena Kuure as the other two principal investigators, and with another 15 or so postdocs and doctoral students in English Philology, Finnish, German and Education, is evaluated on pages 82-84 of the report: http://www.oulu.fi/external/RAE2013/RAE2014_final_reportV2.pdf.

The research communities had to participate in one of three categories: Veni (New research vistas/ openings), Vidi (On the threshold of international breakthrough/recognition) and Vici (World-class research). COACT participated in the highest, or Vici, category. Within that category it got the second-highest grade 5 (on a scale from 1 to 6). COACT got a very positive review, and it is thus safely say that the research conducted within this group is internationally well known and even cutting edge!

Here are a few highlights from the review of COACT:

The multi-modal analysis they proposed offers great potential and could develop into a strong ‘brand’ for Oulu.

This is a well-conceived proposal that offers great potential and opportunities for the students involved.
