Requirements for evaluators of individual projects implemented under priority axis 1 and 2 of the Operational Programme for Research and Development for Innovation (OP RDI).

The Managing Authority (MA) of OP RDI is seeking evaluators for the Interim Evaluation of projects funded under priority axes 1 and 2 of the OP RDI (hereafter IE). The evaluation will review the performance of these interventions and assess their prospects of achieving their planned objectives, as well as their sustainability. The IE will also offer recommendations for future action for both the project beneficiary as well as the MA. The total number of projects expected to be assessed within this IE is 48. The whole evaluation exercise will run from 2012 to 2015.

Actual evaluation:

Currently, the MA is looking for evaluators for Interim evaluation of project “Centre for nanomaterials, advanced technologies and innovation” in Liberec Technical University. Specialization in Material Research (nanofibres, nanostructural layers, polymers) and/or Competitive Engineering (mechatronics, robotisation, driving systems, AI) is required (more details upon request).

Evaluation process:

Each project in the IE will be evaluated by teams of up to 3 selected international and national (Czech) experts who are specialists in their relevant scientific fields. Each evaluation team will be composed of up to 2 international and 1 national expert.

Evaluators will assess the projects in their personal capacity, not as representatives of their employers, their state, or any other entity. Evaluators are required to be independent, impartial and objective throughout the evaluation process.

Each evaluator is required to sign a Declaration of Impartiality and Confidentiality before the commencement of the evaluation process. Evaluators will act under the conditions of these declarations during the entire period of the IE process.

The evaluator is expected to provide a comprehensive assessment of a selected project or projects. This will be done through the analysis of relevant project documentation (including a self-assessment report written by the beneficiary) and via a field mission (max. 3 days) to the project(s) in question. 

The evaluators should, on the basis of the information gathered, produce a joint evaluation report, which is the principal output of the evaluation activities. Furthermore, a member of the evaluation team will be required to deliver a presentation of the evaluation results to key stakeholders (principally the beneficiary and MA OP RDI). This will be done either at the MA offices or at another pre-defined location.
