In this report Vinnova, the Knowledge Foundation (KK-stiftelsen) and the Swedish Foundation for Strategic Research (SSF) present the midterm evaluation report of the Institute Excellence Centre programme.
The Institute Excellence Centres programme is to run for up to 6 years. The partners of a Centre are industrial companies and research institutes in collaboration with a University/Institute of Technology. The parties contribute jointly to the centre's research programme, financially or in the form of active work.
A first evaluation (Vinnova Report VR 2008:04) was carried out less than 16 months after Centre start up. Its primary purpose was assessment of the ways Centre organisation and performance had been established.
This midterm evaluation also includes assessment by scientific expertise.
