Evaluation of structural funds programme at heart of Prague conference
(10 September 2010)
The European Evaluation Society (EES) is organising its 9th International Conference on 6 - 8 October in Prague, Czech Republic. This year's theme is "Evaluation in the Public Interest: Participation, Politics and Policy”. The programme encompasses over 140 sessions which cover a wide range of evaluations - from regional development and EU programmes, to evaluations in developing and transition economies. Evaluation of the EU Structural Fund programmes will be a key topic of many workshops.
As part of the event, the Commission's Directorate-General for Regional Policy is organising a symposium on 7 October 2010 on "How to capture effects in real world public policies". Discussions here will build on the extensive experience from the ex post evaluation exercise of the 2000-2006 structural fund programmes.
