OEET is a web-based application used by experts to record their evaluations of the proposals and project reports that have been assigned to them by the entity that hired them. The term 'project' is used generically throughout this page to signify proposals, applications and project reports.

This page describes how the Online Expert Evaluation Tool (OEET) is used by experts to record the assessments they carry out for EACEA, DG EAC and the National Agencies.

The page OEET Expert Menu and Navigation provides information on the basic functionalities of OEET. It is advised to read this page before you start assessing projects. 


The OEET Assessment tool does not support a multi assessment approach using the same browser. In order to work in multiple assessments at the same time, you need to open each assessment in a different browser (project 1 in Internet Explorer and project 2 in Firefox).

If you open the second assessment in the same browser and if you try to change from one assessment to the other, the system will display the following error message:

You cannot open multiple assessments in the same browser. Please open required Assessment file again to continue.

Please note that if you try to perform this operation, all the data that was not saved will be lost. Ensure that you work in only one assessment at a time with the same browser.

Before you start - General recommendations for assessing:

  1. Write your commentary offline using a word processor package such as Microsoft Word, then copy/paste your completed text into the tool. This method enables you to take advantage of features such as a spellchecker and character count. It also minimises the risk of data loss through system timeout, network issues or local computer crash. Most of the text boxes have a limit on the number of bytes (see also next point) so if you use copy/paste, be sure to check the complete text was successfully pasted.
  2. Bytes v. characters: The text you enter in comments fields is counted in bytes rather than characters. In most cases, 1 character = 1 byte (this includes spaces) but special characters such as those bearing accents may take up more than 1 byte.
  3. Save your data frequently, particularly if you are writing commentary directly into a text box. Changing section invokes an automatic save but staying in the same section does not.
  4. Submit your assessments as each one is finished. Do not wait until all are finalized to submit them all together. Programme staff can read your assessments as soon as they were entered, but are only considered finished and can be taken into consideration once they have been submitted.
