We have been engaged in a similar exercise and the two priority
issues we identified are:
1. the degree of support to/involvement of graduate students
 in the project, particularly PhD candidates.
2. the degree to which the topic of the research is in the
 mainstream of the activities which the department or center
 is trying to develop.
