EASY-ECO Lund Training

Structure of the training course

Each EASY-ECO training consist of three phases:

  1. e-learning
  2. on-site case training
  3. virtual follow-up

 

1) e-learning

The e-learning phase will start in the second half of December 2008 and end in March 2009. E-learning is designed to be flexible (mostly asynchronous and allowing a summer vacation or a work-related break) and interactive. The expected time investment is approximately 80 to 100 hours of course work such as reading prepared texts and selected articles, watching videos and participating in forum discussions with other participants and evaluation experts. E-learning will be supported by a moderator who will also monitor learning progress. Based on performance in the first half of the e-course approximately 80 to 90 per cent of trainees will be awarded with EU-grants to cover their participation in the on-site training.

 

2) on-site case training

The on-site training will take place 14-18 April 2008 in Lund, Sweden, and is organized by the Center International Institute for Industrial Environmental Economics at Lund University. Before the training, each participant chooses one of three offered evaluation projects from the focal themes of the training as a case study. The resulting three groups of about 10-15 persons will have the opportunity to work for one week with the actual evaluation case study under the guidance of an experienced evaluator, dealing hands-on with the different steps of an evaluation according to the structure outlined below.

3) virtual follow-up

The training is concluded by a 3-month virtual follow-up phase. During this time, the young researchers are able to work on their own projects (e.g. a paper, case study, country survey, theoretical paper) and have the chance to receive individual scientific support from the Advisory Board, as well as their trainers. Abstracts of their projects can be submitted and the best papers presented at one of the following conferences.
