ACEEU finished European Commission JRC project on the evaluation of the technology transfer capacity and entrepreneurial profile of Romanian universities

14. May 2018



ACEEU has provided an evaluation of six Romanian universities and highlighted next steps to advance their technology transfer performance and entrepreneurial profile. The evaluation has been performed for the European Commission's Joint Research Centre. In addition to six individual reports for each university, a summary report has been created informing the ministry in Bucharest about the general situation and recommended steps to support universities in their transition towards greater impact generation through technology transfer and entrepreneurship.

Reflecting on the project, Prof. Thorsten Kliewe, Chair of ACEEU, stated "It has been a great pleasure to contribute to the project. The project has shown that ACEEU's evaluation framework cannot only be used for accreditation purposes but can also assist governments in their challenge to develop the third mission performance of higher education institutions".
