23 November 2017 – 24 November 2017,
The 6th European Environmental Evaluators Network Forum (2017 EEEN Forum) will bring together practitioners, academics, policy-makers and other users of environmental evaluation to share views, knowledge and experiences about the use, relevance and future priorities for climate and environment policy evaluation.
The 2017 Forum will ask whether evaluation is evolving in line with the societal and environmental challenges policy is trying to address. Europe, in order to achieve its goal of 'living well, within the limits of our planet', will need to rely inter alia on innovation to make the transition to sustainability. Many forms of innovation will be required to turn Europe into a resource-efficient, green and low-carbon economy.
The 2017 EEEN Forum therefore invites contributions on the role of evaluating innovation in environmental protection and sustainability. The Forum will focus both on the evaluation of innovation and on innovation in evaluation approaches.
