CAPACITY DEVELOPMENT Capacity is the ability of individuals, organizations and the broader system or enabling environment to perform their functions effectively, efficiently and sustainably. Capacity building is defined as: (i) human resources development, (ii) institutional development, including development of systems and beneficiary participation (women/men), and (iii) the development of an enabling environment with appropriate elgal frameworks. Normally, only one indicator cannot measure capacity building as interventions take place at several levels. The Programme Operator must carefully choose one or a few indicators that best describe what should be measured. The below indicators are but a few that may be chosen to measure change in capacity. INDICATOR COMMENT Number of institutions with strengthened capacity Please read comments to “capacity development” above Number of staff trained with improved skills to perform their duties (by gender) Please read comments to “capacity development” above Number of IT systems developed in use An IT-system may be for internal purposes, or for external purposes, for instance to record pollution levels in an area or to record health status. An example: The court system in a beneficiary state introduces a unified ICT system between various actors in the court system as a result of exchange of knowledge with the Norwegian court administration Number of policies, laws and regulations adopted or revised The policies, laws and regulations need to be adopted by an external unit (board, government, legislature) to be an outcome Number of publications, reports, scientific papers originting from projects financed by the Programme made available to public Number of clients/customers served by the institutions benefitting from the programme It is necessary to define the baseline situation (the year the project under the programme started), then a target for a definite year. Each year the institution will report on the number of clients being served % customer / user satisfaction with the institutions’ deliveries Measured by survey EDUCATION, RESEARCH AND INNOVATION Number of persons (by gender) who have completed training/studies that gave recognized study credits (ECTS) Number of persons from beneficiary and donor states, that have completed training/studies which gave recognized study credits (ECTS), who received support from a programme (by gender) Number of Masters degrees earned (by gender) Number of people who earned a Masters degree as a direct result of support from the programme, and within a maximum of 6 moths after the funding ended. Number of Ph.Ds earned (by gender) Number of people who earned a Ph.D degree as a direct result of support from the programme, and within a year after the funding ended. Number of scientific papers published Scientific publications co-authored by one or more researchers in the beneficiary state. Mainly peer-reviewed publications in scientific publications, national or international. Scientific reports may also count as long as they are made available to the public Number of patent applications submitted Patent applications may be: - resident patents - European Paten Office (EPO) - United States Paten and Trademark Office (USPTO) - Japanese Patent Office Note: External patent applications concern inventions already covered by resident applications; one resident patent application can give rise to several external patent applications. Source: data of the World Intellectual property Organisation (WIPO) WORK AND ENTERPRISES Number of jobs created Gross direct jobs created, full time equivalents (FTE). A new t work position created (did not exist before) as a direct result of the programme (workers to implement the project are not counted). The position needs to be filled (vacant posts are not counted) and increase the total number of jobs. Durability: The job is expected to be permanent. Gross: Not counting the origin of the jobholder as long as it directly contributes to the increase of total jobs. Data by gender Number of new enterprises created Number of enterprises created as a result of the programme. The enterprise did not exist the date the project under the programme started.
