This chapter describes the evaluation activities carried out during the three stages of EuRoC. Evaluation and selection activities in EuRoC have represented a central issue. In fact, the successful development of innovative and effective solutions of industrially relevant problems was an essential goal, from which the need to select the teams with the strongest skills and motivations, as well as the use cases with the highest possible impact. Of course, innovative approaches to compare and benchmark skills and solutions were needed. Such approaches are described in detail in the Chapter, by properly highlighting innovative solutions that can be exploited in future initiatives.
