Evaluations

We deliver practical information on the relevance, effectiveness and efficiency of public interventions, especially those financed from EU funds. This may cover the whole programme life-cycle:

We review among others the effectiveness and efficiency of management and implementation systems, including institutional aspects, and also the relationships between programmes or their components, including such issues as demarcation and complementarity.
