Come join us for the biggest EES event of 2023!


Our two days of conferencing preceded by a day of professional development workshops, offer participants the opportunity to engage with major state of the art developments in evaluation, learn from and network with the leaders in the field and help shape the direction of evaluation for transformation in these critical times. Let’s come together to imagine and plan an alternative future:


Our theme


Alternative Futures: what role for evaluation in a just transition?


  • Changing how and what we value? Evaluation’s responsibility in defining alternative measures of success
  • Changing how we work? Evaluation models that work to support a just transition
  • Learning from and with others? Evaluation’s role in the polity


We will collectively seek answers to questions facing the contemporary evaluator: in a time of fast-paced change and overlapping (poly)crises, what role should evaluation play in this transition? How can our discipline, profession, community take a decisive and distinct part in the fast changing World? What would it take?


By coming together, we can influence and leverage positive change. Join us from wherever you are in Europe or the world!                        

By bringing evaluation practitioners, academics, policymakers, and other stakeholders together to exchange and discuss views, ideas, evaluation results, and research findings, let’s collectively be the change.

A key strength of past EES events has been in their inclusive and accessible nature, and we aim to continue this for this online event. Our last conference in 2022 had over 600 participants joining in from all over the world. The major success features of our online events, are the connectivity to others in the field and the chance to get up to speed with fast-moving topics and domains. This event offers similar opportunity to bring together our global community to debate, network and discuss the direction of evaluation and its development in these tough times. We believe that everyone has something to offer in the field of evaluation, and we want to make sure that everyone has the opportunity to participate. For this reason, we want to keep the price of our event as low as possible to ensure that everyone, regardless of their financial circumstances, can participate and contribute to moving evaluation forward.
