Evaluation Helpdesk for Greece and Cyprus
The ‘Evaluation Helpdesk’ project identifies and reviews the evaluations completed in Member States over the 2014-2020 period, the ex-post evaluations of the 2007-2013 programmes and the ex-ante evaluations relating to the 2021-2027 period; and provides support to Managing Authorities in designing and managing evaluations of Operational Programmes co-financed by the ERDF, Cohesion Fund and ESF (including the YEI – Youth Employment Initiative).
Opix is responsible for Greece and Cyprus, in order to monitor the evaluations of the above-mentioned programmes, or parts of programmes, undertaken on the present programming period (2014-2020), the previous one (2007-2013) so long as they were published after January 2015, and the 2021-2027 period; and to provide a list of these.
OPIX will be also able to provide support to the Mananging Authorities on specific evaluation issues relating to impact evaluations in collaboration with an expert in evaluation methods who will be designate jointly by DG REGIO and the Coordinator. This task is dependent on both MAs requesting assistance and DG REGIO agreeing to this.
The project is implemented by Applica sprl on behalf of DG Regio.
