collaborative thought and action for better evaluation

The submissions are currently under review. The preliminary programme is scheduled to be published in the upcoming weeks (by the end of May 2024).

Please find the Call for Abstracts instructions and full 2024 conference theme here.

The world is in a state of polycrisis, facing urgent challenges like environmental degradation, social injustice, and economic instability. These complex issues require new approaches beyond siloed, linear thinking. Collaboration across disciplines, sectors, and perspectives is essential to develop innovative, inclusive solutions.

At the EES-2024 Better Together conference, we will explore how collaboration can lead to more effective, transformative evaluation and social change. This event offers a timely opportunity to leverage the diverse experience of the EES community to reframe evaluation and promote positive impact.
