Once again we opened the year with a fabulous Kick-Off Event. It will be an IPDET year where we create lots of time for the Community – and most imported: host the participative evaluation workshops. In 2022 we had two weeks of On-Site program in Bern, which took place in July. Combined with six online workshops, from April to November. See the overview below:

We are all shocked what is happening right now in Europe! We stand side by side with our Ukrainian friends! The threat to freedom concerns whole Europe!

Evaluation is the result of democratic structures and stands for freedom of speech, transparency, and truth. Let’s do everything possible to support our Ukrainian fellows and our governments to stop the war!

Please see the official appeal of the Ukrainian Evaluation Association and the Statement of the European Evaluation Society here:

How we can support:

If you have possibility to offer shelter for Ukrainian refugees:
Any kind of support of Ukraine is well appreciated.

More information about the 2022 On-Site Program.


The 2022 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.
