DG REGIO at Helsinki Biennal Conference of the European Evaluation Society
DG REGIO gave 3 presentations at the Biennal conference of the European Evaluation Society which took place in Helsinki last 3-5 October. The conference gathered 634 evaluators from 84 countries and all continents, with important delegations from USA, UK, DE, IT, NL, SE, India and Canada. DG REGIO presentations cover the rationale for the new intervention logic proposed to Member States for their regional policy programmes and the new opening given by the draft Regulation 2014-2020 for the use of theory-based impact evaluations and counterfactual impact evaluations. The first two presentations are backed by articles by V. Gaffey and M. Riché.
