Monitoring and Evaluation

What is this action about?

An essential element of the ISA work programme involves the monitoring and evaluation of progress being made and, in particular, the relevance, effectiveness, efficiency, utility, sustainability and coherence of the programme’s actions. This is called for under Article 13 of the underlying ISA Decision.

This action is dedicated to achieving those goals as well as improving the internal management processes of the ISA work programme.

What are the objectives?

  • setting up both quantitative and qualitative measurement, thus providing guidance to the ISA programme and input to the European Interoperability Strategy;
  • providing an effective decision-making communication tool.
