Metrics for Research Infrastructure Performance 

Panel Discussion on best practices for collecting, calculating, and reporting metrics. Can we develop a uniform approach across all Major and Mid-scale Research Infrastructure?

Good performance metrics help demonstrate whether a facility is reaching its goals.  Panelists will discuss different performance metrics for Major and Mid-scale Research Infrastructure facilities. How metrics can improve operations and facilities management.
