The training will be preceded by a virtual training phase, which begins
with selection of the participants from all applicants (10th July). Applicants
will be asked to confirm their participation in the training and to pay
a deposit of 50 €. During this phase, participants will have access
to teaching materials and to short descriptions of case-studies dealt
with during the Bratislava training.
The Bratislava training itself will comprise a morning core-course with
a series of afternoon case-study practical sessions. This will be followed
by a virtual training component following completion of the Bratislava
training. The core course comprises a series of high-quality lectures
given by experienced international trainers focusing on such themes as
evaluation standards, sustainable development, market situation, participation,
theory-based evaluation, evaluation design, data analysis and communication.
Each afternoon the course shifts its focus to practical, case-study sessions,
during which participants have the opportunity to work hands-on alongside
the case-owners and to apply the content of core-course materials studied
in the morning sessions. Participants are given the choice of working
on evaluation case-studies focusing on:
- International and EU policies and programmes
- National policies for sustainable development
- Regional and local activities for sustainable development (LA 21
In groups of 10-15, participants will work with the case-owner and will
be supported by a scientific tutor throughout the duration of the training.
The training will be concluded by a three-month virtual follow-up phase,
during which participants will work on their own papers for submission
at one of the later conferences, with the full support of the case-owners
and the scientific tutors.
