The seminar aims to contribute to the evidence-based analysis of project results. It will do this by equipping participants with the skills to plan and implement impact assessment activities. Ultimately, this will improve the quality of the evidence base for Erasmus+. Content will focus on learning how to use the UK NAs Impact+ Exercise: https://www.erasmusplus.org.uk/impact-and-evaluation
The main objectives are:
- To help beneficiaries understand the concept of impact assessment.
- To train beneficiaries so that they are able to identify their project impact and outcomes, develop suitable indicators, and identify suitable data sources.
- To help beneficiaries use impact evidence in their dissemination by identifying relevant audiences, stakeholders and communication mechanisms.
The seminar will include a number of practical group exercises designed to familiarise participants with
(i) the stages of the Impact+ Exercise and
(ii) identifying and targeting relevant stakeholders.
Participants will not complete the Impact+ Exercise for their project during the seminar. The seminar will provide them with the skills to facilitate a discussion and complete the Exercise with their project partners.
We intend to offer a short 1-2-1 support session to participants after the seminar to discuss individual project questions. This may involve advice or comments on work done to date by the project.
Participants will also be contacted 4-6 months after the seminar to participate in a research project about the impact of the seminar on individual and project impact assessment.
The seminar targets current KA2 Youth beneficiaries funded under the 2018 Call. Previous experience has shown that the workshop is most useful when introduced early in a project lifecycle. Participants should be new or relatively inexperienced in impact assessment / evaluation.
UK NA at Ecorys UK will cover the cost of accommodation in a single room for one night (or two if necessary), all planned meals, cultural activities and materials for the seminar. Any additional nights accommodation should be arranged and paid for by the participants themselves.
Travel costs to be covered by the sending NA.
Note: Hungarian applicants are expected to apply on a Hungarian and on an English application form, too.
