Evaluation Expert Committee
The Expert Committee on Evaluation of Rural Development Programmes (abbreviated to 'Evaluation Expert Committee') was established in 2008 to follow the work of the Evaluation Expert Network related to the exchange of expertise and establishment of best practice on evaluation of the rural development policy.
Role and Tasks
The Evaluation Expert Committee is an expert group functioning as a platform at EU level for the exchange of expertise on evaluation requirements, systems and needs within the rural development programming period 2007-2013. Its tasks are threefold:
- to advise the Commission on the Annual Work Programme of the Evaluation Expert Network;
- to contribute to the choice and coordination of evaluation thematic work;
- to monitor the implementation of ongoing evaluation.
The Evaluation Helpdesk supports the European Commission’s Directorate-General for Agriculture and Rural Development to prepare and conduct the meetings of the Evaluation Expert Committee. The minutes of these meetings are circulated by the DG Agriculture and Rural Development to the members. A short summary of each meeting is published in the Newsletter of the European Evaluation Network for Rural Development.
