The 7th biannual international evaluation conference "Evaluation of Innovations and Innovations in Evaluation"
On 18–19 May 2017, the Ministry of Finance of the Republic of Lithuania and Visionary Analytics organised the 7th international evaluation conference “Evaluation of Innovations and Innovations in Evaluation”. The conference, held in Sapiegos Vilnius Tech Park, welcomed more than 160 participants from 18 European countries.
The conference was organised with the view of sharing methodological practices, information and knowledge used by Member States in applying evaluation innovation, as well as ensuring a high quality of EU evaluation, which leads to the systematic use of evaluation results to improve public policy. This year’s conference was focused on two main themes:
evaluation of innovations in EU investment programmes and other public policies, including but not limited to smart specialisation strategies, and
innovations in evaluation, including methodological innovations and innovative approaches to the use and dissemination of evaluation results.
