The objectives of EVALIP are: to evaluate the R&D potential and assign a 'quality label' to research teams in certain well-defined ICT areas; and to develop a detailed SWOT analysis and respective Action Plan with vision for institute development in mid-terms. The 'quality label' might turn the institution to a regional unit of excellence with preparatory and complementary functions in large research clusters and infrastructures. The proposal discusses in detail the vision about the evaluation and the selection of the assessment critera. EVALIPP specifies the tasks and the main activities for the preparation of the evaluation materials. It presents the expected impact of the assessment exercize. The impact at national level is twofold: first to show to the Bulgarian funding agencies a clear evidence about the R&D quality of the research teams, and second to attract more and better PhD students as well as postdocs. The impact at international level is related to the strengthened position of the institution in the European Research Area with better opportunities for international cooperation and participation in further projects.
