7th European Evaluation Conference 16th – 17th June 2016

“The Result Orientation: Cohesion Policy at Work”

16th -17th June 2016 in Sofia, Bulgaria

Cohesion Policy is the EU’s main investment policy, it targets all regions and many cities in the European Union in order to support job creation, business competitiveness, economic growth, sustainable development, and improve citizens’ quality of life. The need to understand how far these objectives have been met led to a stronger focus on results in the 2014-2020 Programming Period.

The European Commission’s 2016 Evaluation Conference brings together Managing Authorities, evaluation experts, the academia, and stakeholders from across Europe for discussing 2 key questions:

What has EU Cohesion Policy achieved in the last programming period?
What are the challenges to the effectiveness of the interventions in the Programming Period 2014-20?

Evaluation evidence on the performance of Cohesion Policy will be presented, examining:

Lessons learned from evaluations of the 2007-2013 period;
The effectiveness of Cohesion Policy investments in different fields;
The experience of Managing Authorities with the design of Evaluation Plans and the challenges for evaluation in 2014-2020.


Presentations from the conference and workshops are available here.
