The managers from partner universities assembled in Yekaterinburg on 4-5 June 2019 for the reports, prepared by Sergei Polbitsyn of Ural Federal university and Dina Williams of Manchester university on quality assurance results and further development.
All participants of the meeting approved that the progress of the project conforms the requirements of the grant agreement.
However, some issues to be improved were sounded. The first and the most important was the issue on reporting on activities. The information on few grant activities is lacking and it is needed to be presented on the grant website.
The external evaluator Dina Williams emphasized in her report that the partners are doing well with the delivering the expected outcomes, but partners lack attention to the information flows. She noted that it would be useful to adopt internal standards on what information must be posted on outcomes and activities.
The meeting was concluded with better understanding for further improvement of quality assessment of the grant.
