Abstract:The paper discusses the role of statistical and project evaluation tools and the assessment methods and techniques used to evaluate the impact of European experience in Youth Bucharest case study. Youth is an European project developed in 4 cities Berlin, Rotterdam, Gdynia and Bucharest aiming to drive pupils responsible with regard to sustainable energy use in urban transportation. The project coordinator is POP company from Berlin having as Romanian partners the Public Transport Authority of Bucharest and Academy of Economic Studies from Bucharest.
The methodological approach will be based on user satisfaction testing by developing assessment questionnaires. Starting from the data collected in the Bucharest project we will develop best practices in international projects appraisal. Also quantitative analysis of data collected in the test site, will be correlated with project efficiency measures leading to European added value.
The conclusions advance operational and strategic recommendations for educational project development and constitute a model to be followed by any similar cross national educational projects, regardless of their topic.
Keywords: research projects, sampling, energy saving, urban sustainable.
