EVA’s organisation can be made even more efficient:
The management system needs stabilisation; the vacant position as Director of Projects needs to be filled on a more permanent basis.
The project-based organisation should be strengthened by emphasising even more clearly the independent responsibility of the project managers and simultaneously reducing the direct participation of the institute’s management in individual projects.
Enhancement of human resources is needed:
Consultants with research qualifications and/or research experience need to be recruited.
If the current broad mandate is retained, several more consultants need be appointed as well.
