Abstract

The paper suggests an analysis of data concerning 306 educational project proposals submitted for European funding in 2013. Several fundamental questions regarding the role of the evaluation for achieving European ideas and goals when financing projects in education area are posed and answers have been provided. The hypothesis that the actual assessment confirms the objectives of the EU is discussed against the alternative that this assessment changes the focus of EU funding. Another natural question that finds an answer in the present work is “How to plan the preparation of the project proposal with a view to optimize its effectiveness and the expected results?” The data is analysed by the methods of histogram analysis, principal component analysis,cross-covariance, correlation and variation analysis, Hilbert’s transform, as well as graph’s theory techniques.

Keywords: project management, monitoring, evaluation, complex networks
