The EES board meeting yielded a range of productive outcomes and was enjoyed in the city of Prague.
EES is warmly encouraging us to submit proposals for the upcoming, exciting next EES Conference that will take place from the 1st to the 5th October in Greece. I was wondering about why they are interested in us, European-ish (somehow related with Europe) evaluators, EES members, presenting roundtables, panels, posters or even pre-conference workshops.
And that made me remember all the reasons why every time I go to a conference, I submit proposals to try to contribute. Here’s why I do it:
The UNDP-NEC Conference that took place in Istanbul (16-20 Oct. 2018) is behind us and we can look back to a very interesting event with special contributions from members of EES TWG on Private Sector Evaluation.
On the 12th October 2017 EES attended the annual conference of the Hellenic Evaluation Society represented by Mariana Branco - EES board member. It was an excellent venue with an high quality and very strategic audience. There were participants from greek academia, public bodies and consultancy firms. The EES presence was very much appreciated by our colleagues.
The development of evaluation capacity depends on our ability to correspond with the needs of young and emerging evaluators. In addition, it is crucial to promote a more active inclusion of the next generation of evaluators in the debate and priorities set for evaluation in the context of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
