English term or phrase: and the relative priorities that should be placed among them
"The NGT (nominal group technique) may also be used to identify desirable goals (so far I understand) and the relative priorities that should be placed among them."

English translation:= the relative priorities that should be set within (=among) the goals on that list
Explanation:
You are right that it's not an elegant formulation.

"Place priorities" would better be "set priorities" - or in this case, "assign priorities" to the goals on the list.
