The aim of the mid-term evaluation of the Strategy was to provide an independent peer review of the extent to which the EÕS programmes and actions, and actions co-financed by Structural Funds, contribute to the objectives of the Strategy and its Operational Programme, and to develop proposals and policy recommendations to guide the development of the education system beyond the end of the current strategy period, providing input for next the strategy period.

The mid-term evaluation was carried out in cooperation with the Centre for Policy Studies Praxis and was funded from the Technical Assistance programme of Structural Funds on the request of the Ministry of Education and Research.
