We celebrate 20 years IPDET and received quite a lot wishes and greetings:


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.


This year’s online workshop program is delivered between May and November. One workshop runs over a period of 5 days. Each workshop has a different schedule depending on the program the respective instructor(s) define. It is important to be able to commit the whole week for the workshop as fulfilling tasks individually and in small groups requires your flexibility. To enable a higher interaction level, all workshops have limited seats.
