This document sets out the response of the European University Association (EUA) to the public consultation on ex-post evaluation of the Seventh Framework Programme (FP7). EUA has prepared this response in consultation with its Research Policy Working Group (RPWG). The RPWG serves as an advisory body to the EUA Board and Council on European research and innovation policy matters.
Due to EUA’s wide and diverse membership base, some questions included in the online survey were not deemed appropriate to be answered collectively by EUA. Consequently, EUA’s response to the ex-post evaluation of FP7 is submitted in electronic paper form, rather than via the online survey.
