Showing the impact of the CEF transport programme - dialogue with beneficiaries

Thursday, September 21, 2017 - 00:00

Venue: Nordea Concert Hall – main room

Estonia pst 9, 10143 Tallinn, Estonia


Demonstrating results and impact has become part of every EU-funded project’s life-cycle, as EU citizens and decision makers are calling for more transparency and accountability regarding their investments. 

This workshop will focus on the collection and communication of data that show the performance and impact of the CEF Transport programme. In particular:

  • How can KPIs be measured at an acceptable cost and feed into programme measurement?
  • What are the lessons learnt and what will be the future measurement framework for the CEF programme?

The workshop is part of the Connecting Europe conference taking place on 21-22 September 2017 in Tallinn. 

Registration for the conference is now closed. Follow the workshop on Twitter using #ConnectingEUConf and check this page for conclusions after the event!
