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. Not only to backup the HES with an international presence, but most of all to make a personal and open invitation for the next EES conference which will be held in Greece (www.ees2018.eu). The engagement of greek and baltic colleagues and stakeholders throughout the coming months is crucial. The next EES conference will highly benefit from the dynamism of having a fair amount of regional practitioners attending and volunteering to organize formal and non-formal events. We invite all of you actively participate in the conference preparation.
