Evaluation and impact assessment for NOF digitise projects - 21 March 2002



Evaluation is an integral part of any project as it is important to understand the impact of what you are doing on your target audience, to learn lessons from the way the project was undertaken and to identify options for the way forward which will ensure sustainability. This workshop will look at tools and techniques for different types of evaluation, present some case studies, and also explain the Fund's programme-level evaluation and longitudinal work to be done by Resource.

The meeting will take place from 13:30 - 16:30 at 1 Plough Place, London EC4 1DA. For details see the map.
