    Research output: NRELTechnical Report


    The purpose of the Battelle Snowball Metric Working Group is to use the Snowball Metrics framework to build and employ a method to calculate metrics that will enable Battelle-affiliated National Laboratories to better understand their strengths and weaknesses in a few representative areas. This effort supports the overall aim of these Laboratories to use data-driven and evidence-based metrics to build and monitor effective strategies for evaluating science and technology (S&T) as individual laboratories, and as a Battelle institution. Battelle-affiliated National Laboratories include Brookhaven National Laboratory, Idaho National Laboratory, National Renewable Energy Laboratory, Oak Ridge National Laboratory, and Pacific Northwest National Laboratory.
