EASY-ECO Training on Evaluation of Sustainability in Lund, Sweden (13-17 April 2009)
The next training opportunity within the EASY-ECO series of conferences and training courses will be held from 13th to 17th April, 2009, in Lund, Sweden. The training will focus on the areas of evaluation of energy and sustainable consumption policies and programmes. The training will consist of an e-learning phase (mid-December 2008 to March 2009), and the 5-day on-site case training.
EASY-ECO Trainings explore key elements in sustainability evaluation such as roles of evaluation in the policy cycle, aproaches to evaluation, stages of evaluation, methods and techniques to conduct evaluation, and evaluation markets. After attending one of the trainings, participants will be able to conduct actual evaluation projects as full-fledged members of an evaluation team. In addition, the trainees will be embedded in a thematic network of leading scientists and practitioners.
EU-Grants are available for young researchers (with less than ten years research experience) to cover all costs (travel expenses, participation fees, accommodation and living allowance). Practitioners are also welcome to apply. The application procedure for the e-learning course and the subsequent on-site training in Lund will be open until 30 November 2008. Details on the content and organization of the trainings as well as on the application process can be found at http://www.easy-eco.eu, or you can also contact the scientist-in-charge, Mr Michal Sedlacko (firstname.lastname@example.org).
