Event Description

Target group
Responsible and delegated authorities in charge of the migration, asylum and internal security Funds, as well as project managers and evaluators involved in the development and implementation of actions/projects and programmes. The seminar is also open to donors, immigration, asylum and border management agencies, specialised consultancies, academics and NGOs.
 
Description
This new two-day advanced seminar will deal with the new concepts for evaluation and indicators as prescribed in the Horizontal and the Specific Regulations on Asylum, Migration, Integration (AMIF) and Internal Security (ISF) Funds. Prior to indicating targets for outputs once the national programmes are negotiated and approved by the European Commission in 2014, Member States are asked to stipulate expected changes and results by the intervention of the above Funds. This seminar will thus focus on how best to quantify the national programmes for 2014-2020 by generating smart indicators in the common monitoring and evaluation framework. Defining performance indicators could not only help to demonstrate if and to what extent achievements correspond to set targets and purposes, but also provide a detailed set of preliminary data for measuring and comparing a project’s impact.
 
Learning methodology
There will be a series of presentations by expert consultants, national practitioners and EU officials. Discussions and exchanges of experience will be encouraged. Mini workshops and exercises are used both to develop simulations of essential elements of monitoring and evaluation, and to provide a clear view of good practice in generating indicators for new performance frameworks.
 
Objectives
At the end of the seminar, participants should have a clear understanding of how they can select and keep smart indicators in the evaluation during the programming; they can furthermore expect to enhance their knowledge and improve their ability to assess progress against objectives and financed activities under the AMIF and ISF.
