Network-based projects have the potential to multiply the possibilities of impact through a well-coordinated project structure that sustains the results over time at different levels: financial (cooperative shared schemes), institutional (networked) and in terms of capacity (organizative and skills). Unfortunately, that potential is generally under analyzed in traditional monitoring and evaluation tools and methodologies.

After having monitored and evaluated small and large projects worldwide, Col-lab members incorporate particular techniques that enrich the evaluation process ensuring the active participation and learning of the actors involved.

For example, Col-lab undertook the final evaluation of the project Global Dimension of Engineering Education (GDEE). The GDEE project is a multi-country initiative that aims to increase the awareness, critical understanding and attitudinal values of undergraduate and postgraduate students in technical universities towards Sustainable Human Development (SHD) and its relationship with technology.
