EASY-ECO Bilbao Training

Target Group

The target group of the training are young researchers (less than ten years of experience) with a strong interest in the areas of evaluation and/or sustainable development. Participants from the sustainability/evaluation field may be studying for their doctorates, working in a government department, in public administration, in NGOs, or for international organisations.

Importantly, EU-Grants are available to cover all costs (travel expenses, participation fees, accommodation and living allowance) for participants of this target group. Young researchers are highly encouraged to visit a conference, and then attend one of the EASY-ECO Trainings, all of which can be covered by an EU-Grant. Ideally, participants will submit a paper on an aspect of evaluation of sustainability to one of the conferences following their training. Click here for full details on eligibility for grants.

Training Theme

Evaluation and impact assessment are playing increasingly important role in all European member states. Most governments have introduced regulatory impact assessment procedures for their own policy-making processes and candidate countries are being encouraged to do the same. Local Agenda 21 initiatives, and private sector corporations’ sustainability reporting and environmental management systems are also increasingly widely used. Many development assistance programmes, as well as the EU’s agricultural and structural funds, are subject to impact assessment or evaluation procedures which can support sector integration, institutional change, reforms, good governance, planning and implementation of sustainable development.

The EASY-ECO trainings explore key elements in sustainability evaluations. After attending one of the trainings, participants will be able to conduct actual evaluation projects as a part of a team. The training will teach you knowledge applicable in practice and embed you in a thematic network of leading scientists and practitioners. All trainings address the urgent need for high-quality evaluations in the context of sustainable development and support institutional capacity building.
