Expert Group Meeting on "Monitoring and Evaluation of International and European Transnational Projects"

Brussels, Belgium

This meeting will be devoted to mapping the expectations of the community institutions vis-à-vis EU programmes (Creative Europe, Erasmus +, Horizon 2020, etc.), in particular the DG and the Executive Agency. ENCATC has invited Mr. João Delgado from the European Commission to present the mid term evaluation of Creative Europe.

Key questions

  • How do experts evaluate?
  • What are the indicators identified by the Agency?
  • What does the Creative Europe evaluation report say?


Representatives from EU institutions, ENCATC members, Working Group members, representatives from cultural networks, and professionals working on international European and transnational cultural projects. 


Several members of ENCATC are involved in the evaluation of European projects subsidized by Creative Europe, Erasmus+, Horizon 2020 or other transnational programmes of the European Commission. They have to develop methodologies to help arts and cultural managers to implement the evaluation process. 

In October 2015, ENCATC members gathered in Lecce, Italy at the occasion of the 23rd General Assembly during which a workshop was held on “Monitoring and Evaluation” on international and European projects and on indicators for the evaluation of the impact of European networks. This new working group answers to the request of these ENCATC members to set up a working group to have the possibility to continue the discussions and exchanges on methods and good practices. 

Following the call for applications launched to members and followers on 25 May 2016, 40 applicants expressed their wish to be part of the working group. Led by ENCATC member, Pascale Bonniel Chalier from the University Lyon II in France, the aim is to gather academics, researchers, and cultural practitioners. This strong diversity of disciplines and backgrounds profiles enriches the group’s work as evaluation becomes more and more a crucial matter for public authorities and professionals in cultural field. 

On 25 October 2016 in Brussels, ENCATC held the group's kick-off meeting gathering 16 invited guests from higher education, cultural organisations and EU institutions to: (1) better understand the priorities of the Creative Europe programme in relation to the evaluation of both transnational cultural projects and European networks; (2) share evaluation experiences of transnational cultural projects subsidized by EU (Creative Europe programme and Eramsus +); (3) improve our current evaluation methodologies for International / European cultural projects and networks; and (4) identify rigorous indicators for successful cooperation and share them with EU and international institutions.
