This years Annual Convention of ASEEES (Boston, 6-9 December 2018) has the overarching theme of “Performance”. This provoked us to suggest a panel on the “Performance of Performance”. The panel was just acceptes, so project members Philipp Ther, Piotr Filipkowski, Ulf Brunnbauer and Andy Hodges will present fresh results of our project. Adrian Grama, post-doc at the University of Regensburg, will add a paper on Romanian experiences with new evaluations of economic performance. Katalin Miklossy from the Aleksantieri Institute in Helsinki will provide commentary, with Tanja Petrovic from Ljubljana chairing the whole thing.
