Interim evaluations

An interim evaluation is carried out on projects at the 2-year point of their implementation. Conducted by researchers with expertise and experience in the subject fields, these evaluations ascertain the degree of progress being made while rendering advice on how the projects can improve operational effectiveness and fully achieve their objective of establishing a center of excellence. They also assess the projectís potential to rise to the level of an internationally excellent education and research center. The results of the evaluation are used to determine the appropriate allocation of subsequent project funding. Interim evaluations are carried through a process of document and panel reviews. (Follow-up hearings and site investigations may also be conducted when deemed appropriate.)

By continuing the current effort, it should be possible to achieve the project’s original objectives.

6 67%

To achieve the project’s original objectives, guidance should be considered and a stronger effort made.

3 33%

As it stands, it will be difficult for the project to achieve its original objectives. Guidance should be considered and an appropriate revision made to the project’s plan.

0 0%

Given the degree of progress made to date, it will be difficult to achieve the project’s objectives even with greater effort. Following guidance, the project’s plan should be significantly reduced by narrowing down its original objectives.

0 0%

Given the degree of progress made to date, it will even with greater effort be very difficult to achieve the project’s original objectives. Accordingly, it is deemed necessary to terminate the project.
