Monitoring and evaluation is an essential part of management and implementation of European Structural and Investment Funds.

Join our interactive workshop on Indicators, Monitoring and Evaluation of ESIF Programmes and Projects and get knowledge about:

  • Which obligations do involved authorities have regarding monitoring and evaluation during management and implementation of Operational Programmes and ESIF projects inside OPs?
  • Which indicators exist, what are their role and implications for the project cycle?
  • Which monitoring systems and IT systems exist in order to collect, process and assess data?
  • Which data has to be assessed for the respective evaluation?
  • Which evaluation activities can be conducted internally and which have to be outsourced?
  • How to write terms of reference and procurement of evaluation services?
  • How to manage and steer the work of external evaluation experts?
  • What is the role of process and impact evaluation?
  • What are the most appropriate evaluation methodologies and for which type of operations do they apply?
  • How can beneficiaries reach targets and contribute to the collection of data?
  • What are the reporting responsibilities of the beneficiaries?
  • What should beneficiaries be aware of regarding the control and audit activities of Managing and Audit Authority?
  • How can an Audit Authority include the auditing of indicators and performance in an Audit Strategy?


The participants will be actively involved in the workshop. The sessions will combine presentations, case studies and discussion on practical problems.
