During their week at TUT, the panel will meet the representatives of the research communities under evaluation, visit laboratories, and compile an assessment report. The evaluation will consist of a bibliometric analysis and a peer review conducted by a panel of international experts.

The 2017 Research Assessment Exercise is the second such assessment conducted at TUT. The aim of the evaluation is to identify excellence and new openings with the most potential. Researchers have formed research communities across organisational boundaries, and the most promising of the communities were chosen through internal applications in 2016 to be evaluated in TUT RAE 2017. This year, 20 research communities are under evaluation. In the spirit of Tampere3, many of the research communities include researchers from the University of Tampere.
