English term or phrase: valorisation
Context:

"As part of the respondents do applied research, publishing is not of uttermost importance to them before the valorisation of their research results."

Once again, this has me rather confused. I understand the first part of the sentence as meaning:

"As some of the respondents do applied research, publishing is not of utmost importance to them",

but am at a bit of a loss when it comes to what the author means by "before the valorisation of their research results". Presumably it means that this "valorisation of their research results" takes priority over publication, although this would strike me as somewhat odd, since publication of their findings is generally very important to researchers, at least in England.

* Sentence or paragraph where the term occurs: See above
* Document type: Survey of funding mechanisms
* Target audience: Research funding body
* Country and dialect (source): English (by a German or Luxembourger)
* Country and dialect (target): British English

So basically, because it is applied research, it is more important that the research is used than published.
