External Evaluation of EFI started

The External Evaluation of EFI started in March when the External Evaluation Panel (From the left in the picture: Markku Kanninen, Heike Neumann,Tamas Marghescu and Ann Bartuska) met for the first time on 22-25 March at the EFI Headquarters. The panel met with the EFI Board, the Board Task Force on External evaluation (Konstantin von Teuffel, Liisa Saarenmaa, Hubert Hasenaur, J. Bo Larsen) and the EFI staff to get as good as possible overview of EFI activities.

The panel will give its preliminary report by the end of August and it also plans to get feedback from the Associate and Affiliate Members at the Annual Conference. The plan is to have the final report available at the end of the year. The panel stresses that the aim is to be highly objective and the whole exercise is to help EFI in developing.
