Monitoring and Evaluation

Towards effective Monitoring and Evaluation for EU-funded projects

This specialised and practical training programme introduces the purpose of Monitoring and Evaluation (M&E) and useful practices; providing participants with an in-depth understanding of the main principles and techniques of monitoring and evaluation of EU-funded projects.
