KI’s role will be to lead the WP4 and in particular to drive the evaluation plan, coordinate the evaluation activities for both higher institution and industrial partners and drive the activities of data collection and analysis that are going to synthesize the final evaluation report. KI’s staff has a strong experience that is going to bring into the project since KI has been having a key role in previous Erasmus+ funded projects and in particular in conducting the evaluation activities.
