On the 29th of September the Institute of Molecular Medicine (IMM) received the visit of two external evaluators within the scope of the University of Lisbon’s participation in the Institutional Evaluation Programme, carried out by the European University Association. The visit was the result of the interest expressed by the evaluators in talking to IMM researchers about issues related to the research and training carried out at the Institute.
The evaluators met the executive director of the IMM, Professor Maria do Carmo Fonseca, some main researchers, and also talked to students from the IMM PhD programme.
A. Lee Fritschler, Professor at the School of Public Policy of George Mason University, USA, since 2003 and former vice-president and director of the Center for Public Policy Education at Brookings Institution and Hannele Niemi, vice-chancellor of the University of Helsinki, Finland, since 2003 and member of the Evaluation Council of Finnish Higher Education, were the evaluators who came to the IMM.
