As a project funded initiative on two universities, we hired Gabor Hera, PhD external evaluator to seek his guidance on evaluation and impact assessment.
He designed pre and post course questionnaires as well as focus group discussions per stakeholder group as base methods. Questionnaires were rolled out by the science shop staff, whereas focus groups were facilitated by him on CEU and by Maria Laktionkina on EHU.
The reports of the course projects of academic year 2021/2022 are available here:

In addition, we commissioned Ceren Cetinkaya, CEU PhD student, to do small research on evaluation and impact assessment methodologies and practices used by the science shops and similar units on universities across the world. Her work was carried out between March and June 2022.
