    Ex post Evaluations in the Context of Better Regulation: Where Do We Go?, February 1-3, Online course (EIPA, Maastricht)

    Online Course
    • Is your organisation interested in enforcing their ex post evaluation function?
    • How can you manage evaluation activities better?
    • How can you ensure high-quality ex post evaluations?
    • How can evaluation results provide the evidence required for decision-making, and help to improve policies and programmes?

    This online course will answer all these questions. Specifically, it will enhance your ability to design, manage and monitor the evaluations conducted by your organisation, irrespective of whether they are supported by EU funds.

    Introductory Module: learn about key concepts of Better Regulation (BR) and how they are applied across the policymaking cycle. Learn how the BR tools are used in practice in the European Commission (EC). Discuss how Member States (MSs) implement the Better Regulation Agenda and gain insight into the challenges and pitfalls of different modalities.

    Core Module: Learn how to ensure high-quality ex post evaluations. First, gain a foundation of good practices in ex post evaluation through the lessons learned from implementation of the BR Guidelines and Toolbox. Building on this foundation, gain insight into the pillars of a sound evaluation design (the intervention logic, evaluation criteria, evaluation questions and the evaluation matrix). Moreover, learn practical skills for managing evaluation studies and stakeholder engagement. Finally, learn about the latest developments and innovations in evaluation to help keep your evaluations state-of-the-art.
