Evaluation network

The European Commission coordinates a network of representatives of EU countries responsible for the evaluation of EU cohesion policy. The network meets 2-3 times per year.

The Evaluation Network comprises representatives of Member States who are responsible for evaluation of cohesion policy. It meets two or three times each year and is chaired by the Evaluation Unit of DG Regional Policy.

The Evaluation Network is an important forum for discussion between the European Commission and Member States on issues concerning evaluation of cohesion policy, including methodological guidance, indicators, evaluation plans, progress in relation to evaluations being undertaken for the European Commission and Member States as well as evaluation results and their use. The mission of the Network is also to facilitate exchange of experience and good practice between Member States in order to strengthen evaluation capacity throughout the European Union.
