Evaluating the progress of Horizon 2020 Capacity Building activities
A mid-term evaluation of the H2020 CB/MEP (2009-2014) has just been launched and is expected to be completed by mid-September 2013. Its purpose is to assess the performance so far of the Capacity Building/Mediterranean Environment Programme (CB/MEP), with special emphasis on the relevance and (potential) impact of the programme. It will also identify key lessons learned and propose practical recommendations for follow-up actions, both short-term, i.e. for the second phase of implementation (2013-2014), and longer-term recommendations that could be addressed in the 2015-2020 period. The evaluation will include visits to the Partner Countries as well as interviews with various stakeholders. The recommendations of the final report will be discussed at the 6th Horizon 2020 Steering Group Meeting which is planned to take place at the end of 2013.
