Evaluating the MoU between IHE Delft and the Dutch Ministry

Delft, the Netherlands

In the summer of 2019, PULSAQUA evaluated the Memorandum of Understanding between IHE Delft Institute for Water Education and the Dutch Ministry of Infrastructure and Water Management. This MoU makes it possible for IHE Delft to add to knowledge and research that can contribute to policy- and decision-making activities of the Dutch Ministry of Infrastructure and Water Management.

For the evaluation we used a combination of qualitative and quantitative methods:

  • in-depth, semi-structured interviews with the main stakeholders inside the program.
  • short video and/or teleconferencing interviews with relevant stakeholders for input on the previous MoU performance or possible future cooperation.
  • we used relevant material from organizational staff inside IHE Delft (i.e. communication
    department, financial department).
  • and finally, we analyzed the results using the Logical Framework summarizing the identified objectives, outputs, and activities in the Work Program.

The evaluation was then used by IHE Delft to set-up a new MoU supported by a better organizing and financial structure, that has been later on signed by both IHE Delft and the Ministry and is currently in use.
