International Program for Development Evaluation Training

Better Evaluations for a Better World
July 6 – 24 2020 in Bern, Switzerland


It is with deep regret that the IPDET Steering Group announces the cancellation of the program delivery in July 2020 due to the worldwide evolution of the Coronavirus situation. We are working on alternatives and will inform you as soon as possible. Application for self-payers as well as for scholarships is closed until further announcement.

Those of you who have already been accepted to the program and paid the fees, will be granted full refund of the fees. Our Finance Officer will get in contact with you soon.

The International Program for Development Evaluation Training (IPDET) is a globally recognized and respected player in advanced training in the field of evaluation. The courses and workshops are tailored to the needs of professionals who commission, manage, practice or use evaluations.

This unique training program brings together global expertise in evaluation to build foundational and advanced knowledge and skill in evaluation. Over the past years, more than 4000 professionals received training and joined the global and multi-disciplinary IPDET network.

More than 250 participants from all over the world will come together during the Core Course and Workshop weeks and update their knowledge, share their experience and enhance their skills.


Application for IPDET in July 2020 has been cancelled. Updates coming soon. Scholarships will be available for eligible applicants.
