* The participating institution is obliged to also cover these costs.

In the past, some institutions received additional funds to cover the IEP registration fee from the European Structural Funds, the ministries or the World Bank. Thus, institutions interested in financial support of their evaluations are encouraged to consult their national provisions, respective ministries and other sources for information on possible funding schemes. 

In addition, the IEP secretariat is prepared to work with each participating institution to adapt the timeline of the payment of the registration fee to its specific circumstances and requirements.

The fee for coordinated evaluations is based on the scope of each exercise. For further information, please contact the IEP Secretariat.
