    Quality control and Monitoring

    A detailed description of our various quality measures on processes of work performance etc. can be consulted in WP 3; here we would like to focus on the most important aspect of quality:
    Quality assurance of project results and objectives will be 2-fold,

    1. On the content-level (quality/applicability of products, reader-friendliness of reports)
    2. On the piloting-level (quality of training courses, applicability of curriculum)

    and based on 3 mechanisms, consortium evaluation (internal, A), independent external evaluation (external, B) resp. stakeholder feedback (third parties, C). The combination of internal, external, and 3rd party evaluation will make sure project results address challenges identified.
    Quality assurance of the products (1) will be based on all 3 mechanisms, firstly internal: As all partners are involved (and responsible) in the development of the products, they are asked to recommend or improve in case of non-satisfaction. If 2 (or more) partners disagree with quality of a product, product will not be declared as finalized and responsible partner has to rework it. All partners share responsibility.

    Indicator: Number of products that had to be reworked.

    External: All products will be submitted to external evaluator, together with a short grid (as known from papers for journals or conferences); main recommendation will be: Sufficient for publication? (Yes/Yes after improvements/No). In case that "Yes after improvements" or "No" is chosen, reasons or hints for improvements should be given. Responsible: Independent external evaluator.
    Indicator: Number of grids, where "Yes after improvements" or "No" was chosen.
    3rd parties: Products will be presented during trainings and on conferences and will be published via newsletters, publications, etc. Wherever applicable (for instance during physical meetings) participants are asked to fill in a grid, focusing on their satisfaction with the event, their estimation on quality of product, etc. Responsible: P4 (ITB Uni HB).

    Indicators: Statistics (histograms) from stakeholders.

    2.1.4 (test runs of training) will be additionally monitored by a detailed quality assurance guideline developed in WP3, focusing on the learning outcomes (both: technical and key competencies) of the learners and the feedback of all involved parties (teachers, trainers, mentors, tutors), both formative and summative. Regular meetings with the parties mentioned on national level will not only lead to short minutes, we will ask them also to fill in an evaluation questionnaire to understand their opinion on the results and what could and should be improved. Responsible: P4 (general), P5 (Russia), P9 (Serbia).
    Indicators: Quantitative and qualitative analyses of feedback.
    All indicators will be part of confidential interim resp. final reports.
    Additional performance indicators that have been chosen to monitor quality of project results:

    • number of stakeholders reached by dissemination activities
    • number of stakeholders endorsing MoU
    • number of stakeholders/policy makers reached with position paper.
