The most recent evaluation was performed at the beginning of 2010 by internal Evaluation Committees, appointed by the University Senate Research Council. A series of evaluation criteria were adopted for all participating Laboratories, with special focus on the research field covered by each Laboratory, the competence in infrastructure and manpower, the number and variety of researchers interested in using each Laboratory, the scientific impact of provided services, the contribution to educational activities, the future perspectives etc.     


In the final Evaluation Report, recommendations are given concerning the Laboratories that fulfill the above criteria and should be part of the Network, the Laboratories that fail to meet these criteria and should be excluded and the Laboratories that should put additional effort to meet the criteria before being re-evaluated.      


Generic issues have also been considered and the Evaluation Committees  made a series of suggestions, such as setting a Code of Operating Rules for the Network Laboratories, initiating procedures for designating expert scientific and technical personnel, ensuring alternative funding to cover operating costs, pursuing the expansion of the Network and the enhancement of the existing infrastructure. 


All recommendations and suggestions were approved by the University Senate and follow-up actions are already in place.
