sentence each).

How can the achievement of the result be measured?


Please enter at least one indicator for each result. Each indicator
should contain a baseline value, a target value and a source of
verification.

Baseline value: A web presence with a widely appropriate design


and structure exists but the contents are incomplete, often outdated,
unsufficiently translated and sometimes focus rather on formal aspects and representation than on the substantial work of the Academy, thus creating an image that may not attract the best students,
well-qualified lecturers and international donors and partners.
Target value: The reformed website provides all necessary and useful information, up to date and presented professionaly and where
appropriate with English translation. It focuses on the substantial
work of the Academy and creates a transparent and modern image
that underlines the professionality of the Academy's work and its
role in preparing public administration in Moldova for European integration.
Source: The reformed website.

2.2 The reformed website provides a broad open


access to sophisticated publications and didactic
materials.

Baseline value: The website provides already open access to some


publications (the Review "Administrare Public", the newspaper
"Funcionarul public" and conference proceedings) but not to the
didactic materials distributed in the courses or to other working
materials.
Target value: The open acces is expanded. The reformed website
allows the free download of more scientific publications (e.g. working papers or discussion papers from forums and specialised
working groups) and of general didactic materials. For more and
more courses and projects, an own special website is created.
Furthermore, special materials from the individual courses (in both
fields, professional development and higher education) are provided

Baseline value: There are general courses about European integration but no specific courses on European Union law in the curricula.
Target value 2016: A course "Introduction to European Union law" of

Target value 2017: The concept of the course has been reviewed
with regard to the experiences and evaluations in the pilot course.
The official integration of the course into the curricula has been
approved or the decision-making process for the approval has
started. Comprehensive course materials and a special website for
the course are provided. The course is given again, if possible as an
integrated part of the curricula. If possible, colleagues from the
Legal Science Chair participate in the course and are trained specifically in order to enable them to give the course in the future. The
translation of the course materials into the Romanian language is
envisaged.

to help bring about the above planned change in the
employers organisation? Please enter 3-5 results (one
sentence each).

How can the achievement of the result be measured?


Please enter at least one indicator for each result. Each indicator
should contain a baseline value, a target value and a source of
verification.

Baseline value: The Academy maintains "international relations" but


with regard to its methods of operating and its limited human and
material resources it is unclear to what extent there is or can be a
real (substantial) international cooperation.
Target value: One report on the state and potential of international
cooperation of the Academy.
Source: The report, as presented to the Rectorate.

4.2 Potential topics, partners and donors for international cooperation are identified.

Baseline value: There is little clarity about possible topics and possible suitable partners and not enough knowledge about possible
donors for substantial international cooperation.
Target value: Presentation of suitable topics and partners and potential donors in the report on the state and potential of international
cooperation of the Academy.
Source: The report, as presented to the Rectorate of the Academy.

4.3 A model international symposium has been


organised.

Baseline value: The conferences at the Academy still follow the


post-soviet style and there is little awareness about the modern
standards for scientific international cooperation.
Target value: An international scientific symposium or scientificopractical symposium that serves as a model has been organised. Its
organisation and program followed best European practices, focussing on substantial work and intense scientific (or cross-over scientifico-practical) discussion. High quality materials have been published according to the highest standards at the special website for
the symposium and in printed conference proceedings and have
been presented to the international expert community.
Source: The report to the donor and the special website for the
symposium where all materials are available for download.

5. The Academia de Administrare Public is


more active as a think tank and forum

Indicators

How can the achievement of the result be measured?


Please enter at least one indicator for each result. Each indicator
should contain a baseline value, a target value and a source of
verification.

5.1 Two open forums have been organised

Baseline value: Due to its close contacts with all kinds of public
authorities and international partners and donors and to its cooperation with public servants from all these institutions in the teaching
process, the Academy is a well suitable institution to serve as a
think tank and forum for all matters of public administration. However, this potential, in particular the potential for synergy, is not fully
exploited.
Target value: During the year of 2016, two thematic forums, supported by GIZ, have been organised by a group of organisers at the
Academy with the collaboration of the CIM expert. The forums
address in particular to representatives and public servants of local
and central public administration, regional institutions, ministries and
other relevant institutions and to the Academy's lecturers but are
open to other interested persons. For each thematic forum a special
website has been prepared where information is available and the
materials from the forum can be freely downloaded.
Source: The report on the implementation of the forums by the organisers and the special websites for the forums.

5.2. A model scientific article has been published


in the Academy's review "Administrarea Public".

Baseline value: The Academy publishes various scientific publications. However, not all published contributions meet modern international scientific standards.
Target value: A well-elaborated model scientific article has been
published as an example to illustrate modern scientific standards
and practices (in particular modern practices of scientific citing in an
international scientific environment).
Source: The scientific review "Administrarea Public", volume 89
(2016).
