  • Evaluation reports: these reports establish annual evolution of the project in terms of dissemination and in accordance with the performance indicators. They compile the dissemination activities, evaluate their progress and propose corrective measures if necessary. The evaluation reports also consider the indicators for measuring impact of events organized in the project framework.
