The Ministry of Finance of the Republic of Lithuania kindly invites you to the 6th international conference held in Lithuania on the evaluation of EU-funded programmes and other public policies. This is a biannual event (1st evaluation conference took place in Vilnius in 2005) which has become increasingly popular among speakers and participants from the EU countries and all over the world. Biannual evaluation conferences create a platform for an exchange of best practices, networking and, most importantly, it becomes an inspiration source for both evaluation commissioners and evaluators.

The conference will take place on the 20-21 May 2015 in Vilnius.

This year's conference will largely focus on the use of evaluation results for decision making and impact of evaluation on the public policies and public administration. The utilisation of evaluation findings is often addressed in academic literature and practical discussions, but there seems to be a lack of evidence on the use and impact of the Cohesion policy evaluation and its findings. Regulations of European structural and investment funds for 2014-2020 and other related documents establish increasingly detailed provisions related to a better use of evaluation findings and the involvement of policy makers into evaluation processes. Evaluation plays an important role in the context of evidence-based and result-oriented policy making. However, for evaluation to have an impact on the process and results of policy making, the culture of evidence-based policy making must exist and evaluation findings must be used.

Achieving better use of evaluation findings requires understanding which particular factors influence the utilisation of evaluation and its results, i.e. to what extent it is affected by internal factors (related to evaluation itself) and external factors (such as the existing management culture and public policy context, etc.). Other important questions include: what do we mean by the term “utilisation of evaluation” and is the implementation of evaluation recommendations a proper criterion to judge on the use and impacts of evaluation? All these questions will be discussed in the 6th International Evaluation Conference in Vilnius, Lithuania.
