'Conf-Shop' Planning the future Knowledge Base for Evaluation

Brussels, 30 September 2011

In the context of the preparation of the future Horizon 2020 programme, and following the completion of the interim evaluation of FP7, the Ex-Post Evaluation Unit in DG Research and Innovation organised a 'Conf-Shop' to take stock of evaluation evidence and to look ahead at future challenges. The event took place in the Albert Borschette Conference Centre in Brussels on 30 September 2011.

The event focused on three interrelated issues:

  • An overview on recent efforts to assess the longer term impact of the Framework Programme
  • Reflections from practitioners on the evaluation of FP7
  • Views from experts and stakeholders on the challenges for an evaluation and monitoring system for the Horizon 2020 Programme.

The 'Conf-Shop' was not a traditional conference, but a conference and a workshop combining presentations with active involvement from the participants and providing the occasion for a real engagement. In particular, all the participants were invited, through a poster survey, to express their views on the impacts of FP7, and on the challenges for a future evaluation and monitoring system under Horizon 2020.

Almost 100 participants from the fields of research evaluation and research management attended the event. The conference presentations are available below, along with the outcomes of the poster survey, and few pictures of the event.
