WHAT IS A PEER REVIEW?
Peer Review is a form of external evaluation with the aim of supporting the reviewed institution in its quality assurance and quality development efforts.An external group of experts, called Peers, is invited to assess the quality of one or more fields of activity of the institution, such as the quality of service provision of individual departments or services. During the evaluation process, the Peers visit the reviewed institution.Peers are external but work in a similar environment and have specific professional expertise and knowledge of the evaluated subject. They are 2-3 “persons of equal standing” with the persons whose performance is being reviewed. In the framework of the network peer review can be bilateral or multilateral. In the framework of SERN it will be based on reciprocity.
