On 10-11 December Regional Territorial Observatory in Opole hosted our experts during the conference 'Monitoring and evaluation of public policies'. It was a good occassion to present the first outcomes of our project 'Use of knowledge in administration – mechanisms of civic supervision'.
The aim of the project is to verify, whether the knowledge from evaluations performed in 2007-2013 programming period could be used in designing the 2014-2020 instruments.
The first phase was based on the work of experts, who analyzed the available evaluation reports to examine the way and extent of use of recommendations in preparation for implementation of the funds in the years 2014 to 2020.
The key element of the first phase is a report entitled Reducing administrative burdens for beneficiaries of EU Cohesion Policy – recommendations from evaluation studies, which was presented during the conference.
