This paper presents a case study of a Portuguese research centre, demonstrating the barriers to developing a quality culture. Two main barriers are identified: (i) need for meta-governance at institutional level to develop strategies dissociated from governments’ objectives and goals and central administration level and (ii) lack of a sound internal quality culture based on the engagement and cohesion across the community. Four possible strategies for overcoming these barriers are discussed: (i) collecting information, experiences and good practices; (ii) designing contextualized research monitoring/ assessment tools (Institutional Research Assessment Matrix); (iii) promoting the creation of internal shared quality perspectives (Research Quality Workshop and Research Quality Questionnaire); ivproviding support. We worked on the intersection between the European policy (research assessment guidelines and frameworks) and the national/institutional research assessment experiences and practicesaiming to assist research managers in their strategic planning initiatives.
