Evaluation Helpdesk 2024 Summer School

Category: Trainings

Organised by the Evaluation Helpdesk on behalf of the European Commission.

This training seminar will be held in Bologna on 26, 27, and 28 June 2024.

Programme: Evaluation Helpdesk Summer School 2024 Agenda

This year’s Summer School will focus on three primary themes:

(1) ensuring that evaluations are relevant and useful for the policymakers;

(2) making the Evaluation Plans operational (feasibility challenges, new tools and integration of related evaluations);

(3) how to evaluate different types of interventions, policy instruments and programmes.

Big data and AI are new and potentially powerful resources for evaluation and will receive specific attention during discussion and group work. The same is the case for new methodological approaches, such as experimental and quasi-experimental methods which will be subjected to discussion.

There will again be a ‘masterclass’ this year and the topic of it is the use of the macroeconomic models in evaluation of the Cohesion Policy programmes.

Trainers: Thomas Delahais, Andrea Naldini, Elliot Stern, Terry Ward
