Quality, Diversity, and Innovation in Romanian Universities Project
Ready for innovating, ready for better serving the local needs.
Quality and Diversity of the Romanian Universities Project
The projects aim at strengthening core elements of Romanian universities, such as their autonomy and administrative competences, by improving their quality assurance and management proficiency.
These projects set the premises for an external evaluation exercise of 90 Romanian universities in order to receive an independent international opinion which will be the basis for future strategic decisions and institutional development.
In the framework of the project "Performance in Research, Performance in Teaching – Quality, Diversity, and Innovation in Romanian Universities" 42 Romanian universities will benefit from an IEP evaluation during two rounds of evaluation, as follows:
- First round (2011 – 2012): 12 universities will be evaluated;
- Second round (2012 – 2013): 30 universities will be evaluated.
Within the project "Ready for innovating, ready for better serving the local needs. Quality and Diversity of the Romanian Universities" 44 Romanian universities within the teaching category will benefit from an IEP evaluation during two rounds of evaluation, as follows:
- First round (2012- 2014): 17 universities will be evaluated;
-Second round (2013 – 2014): 27 universities will be evaluated.
The results of the evaluation exercise (i.e. the evaluation reports, the cluster reports prepared after each evaluation round and the final report comprising the cluster reports and the final conclusions and recommendations) will be disseminated in public events (workshops and conferences) as well as published on the project’s website both in Romanian and English.
