The external evaluation was performed by independent experts appointed by the consortium at the very beginning of the project implementation. The monitoring was performed throughout the project lifetime and the evaluation resulted in two reports, one at mid-term and one right after the conclusion of the project activities. Each report consisted of an evaluation of the project progress and performance based on a comparative analysis of the application forms and delivered results/performed activities, as well as interviews with each partner and an anonymous online survey on the project management and implementation. The mid-term report included a number of recommendations that were fully adopted by the consortium in the second phase of the project. The final evaluation report included a number of recommendations that have been promptly adopted before the submission of the present report.
