THE ROLE OF THE EXTERNAL EXPERT

To ensure the high quality and excellence of the program, the Bioref consortium will recruit an external expert (subcontracted) to externally evaluate the BIOREF Master.

The external expert has to submit each year a report on the Bioref Master which will be sent to the EU commission, evaluating the following topics:

  • Project management issues
  • Relations within the consortium
  • Achievement of tasks vs the schedule
  • Good management of scholarships
  • Quality of the curriculum
  • Student selection / quality

For each criterion, the expert will have to highlight strengths, weakness and suggest corrections. To be able to manage these different points, the expert will lead interviews with different actors (e.g., students, professors, administrative people) or propose questionnaires to the different groups. These actions could be done during the general meetings, schools or even during the course semesters if needed.

Eligibility requirements

The External Expert has to participate in meetings of the Advisory Board once a year and has to review the Annual “Quality Control Report” also proposing corrective actions.

The external expert will be recruited based on the following criteria:

  • Strong knowledge in chemistry, biochemistry, chemical engineering or biology
  • A good level in English (C1)
  • Experience in evaluation for the EU Commission or another institution will be appreciated

A contract between the external expert and the universities of Lille and Bari will be signed each year to ensure the reliability and quality of the evaluation.
