As part of the wider strategy to promote Roma inclusion, the Directorate-General for Regional Policy of the European Commission is hosting a conference entitled "Monitoring and Evaluation of Roma Projects and Policies" in Brussels on 30 November 2010 (Tuesday).
The key objective of the conference is to raise awareness about the necessity of having adequate evaluation and monitoring mechanisms in place, as well as to present various evaluation/monitoring methods and good practices in the field of Roma inclusion.
The first session will be devoted to project monitoring and will discuss how particular projects such as the Pilot Project for Roma inclusion could become part of result-oriented policy. The second session will be devoted to policy monitoring and more specifically on how accurate project implementation can contribute to achieving policy goals.
