Decision makers need to be familiar with impact evaluation methods


The Centre for Research on Impact Evaluation (CRIE) has launched a series of workshops in order to foster the creation of a community of practice for counterfactual impact evaluation of policy interventions financed under the European Social Fund. A recent workshop held in Budapest brought together decision makers from Central and Eastern Europe.

BI experts supported the event by facilitating group work on the design of impact evalutions for policy interventions drawn from the experience of participants and presenting an example from Hungary. This concerned the evaluation of a targeted wage subsidy for older workers, using discontinuity analysis.
