Abstract: Universities are faced with changing methods of research evaluation. The revised Standard Evaluation Protocol in the Netherlands has now explicitly and prominently taken into account societal relevance. This shift has profound implications on the institutional research in higher education and the type of data that research groups need to collect. The International Institute of Social Studies performed quite well in the last research assessment with among others a score of (1) World leading/excellent on societal relevance. In the paper we describe how we have tried to collect the evidence for this assessment. We are interested to discuss the possibility of developing a methodology for societal relevance.
