PROJECT NUMBER: 1330302
Evaluation and Monitoring of the European Agricultural Fund for Rural Development and the European Maritime and Fisheries Fund
10-11/Dec/2013 • Maastricht
The seminar is aimed at all economic actors involved in the evaluation and monitoring of the new Rural Development Programmes and Fisheries OPs for 2014-2020, including managing authorities, national, regional and local officials or representatives, Local Action Groups of EAFRD and EMFF projects and programmes. The seminar is also open to economic and social partners involved in the EAFRD and EMFF process, NGOs, higher education establishments and consultants.
This seminar is a two-day event and will be dedicated to meeting the specific monitoring and evaluation needs of the two funds: EAFRD and EFF. It will cover the key evaluation and monitoring issues and the ongoing evaluation specific to these funds, plus the quality assessment methods of the ex-ante programme evaluations for 2014-2020. The subject of evaluation plans, impact assessment, the development of indicators and the quantification of programmes is dealt with. It will also detail the requirements laid down in the new draft regulations, as well as reviewing the support tools provided by the Commission and other bodies. Finally, emerging best practice techniques for evaluation will be examined.
The seminar will consist of a series of illustrated presentations given by European Commission officials, regional practitioners, and expert consultants. Ample time will be available for question and answer sessions, discussions and the exchange of experiences.
At the end of the seminar participants should have a clear understanding of all the monitoring and evaluation requirements associated with EAFRD and EMFF for 2014-2020. Participants should also acquire a quick general tool kit for programme evaluation, system monitoring and impact assessment relevant for the two funds.
