The European Commission has launched a public consultation in the context of its ex-post evaluation of the European Social Fund (ESF) during the 2007-2013 programming period.
Today, the Commission adopted a Communication on the contribution of the European Structural and Investment Funds (ESI Funds) to the EU's growth strategy, the Investment Plan and the Commission's priorities over the next decade.
An extraordinary meeting of managing authorities on 25 September discussed how to optimise the use of the ESF and the FEAD to support the integration of asylum seekers and refugees and exchange good practice and experience in this field
The conference will highlight the benefits of evidence based policy making. It will be a showcase for the best evaluations, a place to discuss good practices in evaluation planning, and an opportunity to broaden the range of people involved in the evaluation of Cohesion Policy.
