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 is organising a 'Conf-Shop' to take stock of evaluation evidence and to look ahead at future challenges.
The focus of the event will be 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' is 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.
