EU Framework Programme Evaluation and Monitoring

This page is the entry point for the European Commission's activities on Framework Programme evaluation and monitoring. These activities support the implementation and management of the EU Framework Programmes (FP) and the development of research policy. Since 2000 the Commission as a whole has very significantly strengthened its commitment to evaluation and monitoring as part of the reforms for sound and efficient management.
