Event Description

Member States continue to conduct evaluations of their 2014-2020 EU Structural and Cohesion Funds projects and programmes. Have they collected the best monitoring data and do they know how to measure impacts? Which evaluation method should be used – theory-based or counter-factual? As new programmes for 2021-2027 are now being agreed and implemented, are we clear about what the New Regulations say about monitoring and evaluation requirements?

This is a webinar over 5 days (mornings and afternoons):

  • Days 1 & 2 deal with monitoring tasks, indicators and the Performance Framework. A Czech Ministry official will assess the lessons learnt from 2014-2020 and the implications of the new requirements for 2021-2027.
  • Days 2-5: we examine how to conduct “evaluations during the programming period”. A leading evaluation consultant-economist will focus on the two broad recommended evaluation methods – theory-based and counterfactual evaluations – and the choices for project / programme evaluations on the ground.

We will also describe how to complete an ex post cost-benefit analysis (ex post CBA) for infrastructure and other larger projects.

A European Commission official will describe what progress has been made on impact evaluations in 2014-2020 and explain what is expected in 2021-2027.

You will also learn how to manage evaluation studies, including preparation of the Terms of Reference, aspects of fieldwork, and typical live issues for your current / planned evaluations.
