Six months after the establishment of the VEU-centres, an evaluation (EVA, 2010) showed that the process of finding a responsible host institution to be responsible of the management of the centre was very resilient and resulted in some bad relations between the institutions within the VEU-centre. According to the evaluation, it was difficult to choose one host institution among the many institutions in the geographical area. Each institution in the area had the opportunity to appoint one institution to be a host of the VEU-centre, but it was difficult to agree among the institutions, as too many wanted to be a host institution. The Minister of Education made the final decision. It meant that the centres were implemented at different speed. However, the 13 VEU-centres are fully operational today.
