Evaluation – how does it go?

Tuesday, 30 May, 2017 to Wednesday, 31 May, 2017
Helsinki, Finland

Interact invites representatives from Interreg programmes working on and with evaluations to join this workshop to discuss current challenges in their evaluation process – and possibly also to discover the opportunities provided by an evaluation.

The main objective of the first day is to exchange with colleagues from other Interreg programmes on the procedure, challenges and lessons learned when drafting Evaluation Terms of References (ToR):

  • What are the advantages and lessons learned of having one ToR for all evaluations planned for your programme in this programming period? 
  • What are the advantages and lessons learned of having several ToRs for the different evaluations planned for your programme in this programming period? 

On the second day you will hear first findings from several evaluations presented by Interreg programmes: what were the challenges and are the lessons learned from the evaluations you have carried out in this period so far? What can be improved for evaluations still to be conducted? How can the operational evaluation be used as a preparation, as input for the impact evaluation?

In addition we will also follow up on our discussions on indicators, which we have started at our previous evaluation events. We will present existing output libraries of Interreg programmes and then discuss how a joint output library of all Interreg programmes could/should look like (output library = an approach for a output typology so that data across programmes could be aggregated and also communicated).

Throughout the workshop guidance and feedback will be available from representatives from the Evaluation Unit of DG Regio.

Participants are encouraged to contact Interact if they identify a topic on the agenda for which they would be willing to share their practice/experiences through a presentation. Or to help shaping the agenda by sending to the contacts below any concrete question, aspect, topic related to the agenda items they would like to discuss in more detail.
