News archive - [Call for application] EVAL-INNO RTDI Evaluation Training Course, 17-21 June 2013, Podgorica, Montenegro

The EVAL-INNO project organises the third RTDI evaluation training course on 17-21 April 2013 in Podgorica, Montenegro. The training will gather participants from Montenegro, Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina and Kosovo* and will be carried out by experienced RTDI evaluation trainers from six countries (Austria, Bulgaria, Greece, Hungary, Montenegro and Serbia).

The training will introduce the participants to the theory and practice of the research and science-related evaluation of organisations, policies, programmes and institutions.

The training will be offered to two target groups:

  • Potential or current evaluation experts. Researchers and employees of scientific organisations are in general expected to apply for this group.
  • Programme owners. Experts from managing authorities and governmental agencies are expected to sign in the second group of “programme owners”.

The training mainly targets:

  • Junior experts that would like to gain theoretical and practical knowledge on RTDI evaluation methods and best practices.
  • Senior experts that would like to strengthen their knowledge in order to become in the future more deeply involved in RTDI evaluations of RTDI institutions, science and innovation policies and programmes.

Number of trainees:

A total of 26 trainees are expected to participate in the training (17 from Montenegro and 9 from the invited countries). 

Application

EVAL-INNO announces the training opportunity publicly and applications from both target groups as described above are most welcome. In addition those current and potential evaluators and managing authorities who have been identified during the project and/or mapped with a template at the website (RTDI Evaluation section) have been invited explicitly.
