The quality control will be carried out by a combination of outsider’s perspectives through

  • a responsive evaluation
  • external experts,
  • peer-reviews of participants of further trainings and students of the elective “EBD”

and an insider’s perspective through

  • quality control measures by the project’s internal steering committee for the quality management (SC1)

The responsive evaluation will be carried out by Alena Kralovà, PhD. She will be responsible for the evaluation of the project’s progress of all work packages (WP) and will deliver reports and recommendations after the end of the milestone of each work package. The contact persons (CP1-9) will be responsible to take appropriate measures to implement the recommendations of the responsive evaluator.

SC1 will be responsible for WP1, WP2, WP3 and WP6 and will deliver reports and recommendations after the end of the milestone of WP1, WP2, WP3 and WP6. The leaders of the work units WU1, WU2 and WU3 will be responsible to take appropriate measures to implement the recommendations of the SC1 concerning WP1, WP2 and WP3, CP1-9 will be responsible to take appropriate measures to implement the recommendations of the SC1 concerning WP6.

  • WP1 processed by WG1 will be monitored continuously by P2 and P3.
  • WP3 processed by WG3 will be monitored continuously by P1 and P3.
  • WP2 processed by WG2 and WP3 by WG3 will be carried out also by expertise from external experts of Central Asian universities who are not consortium members.
  • WP4 processed by WG4 will be carried out by peer-reviews from participants of further trainings and students.

The quality control and monitoring will be supported by a web-based project management tool that will also serve as a virtual communication and reporting tool for all. The coordination meetings will be used to report on the results of the quality control and monitoring in order to plan or correct further project activities if necessary.

This work package is dedicated to implement the described quality management.
