In recent years, research evaluation has become a strategic and increasingly important tool for measuring the quality of universities, proportionally affecting the distribution of resources and the allocation of staff points by the Ministry.
The Ministry of Education, University and Research has entrusted ANVUR (Italian National Agency for the Evaluation of the Universities and Research Institutes) the task of assessment, based on the Guidelines for the Evaluation of Research (DM 27 June 2015 n. 458).

The University of Florence has adopted the Evaluation Support System for the Scientific Production of Universities - CRUI / Unibas as one of the instruments for monitoring the University's scientific production.
The treatments performed by the System are aimed at calculating aggregate indicators based on the scientific production present in the institutional FLOrence REsearch archive - FLORE.
