This online event focused on the added value of being an evaluator of RDI framework programme proposals. After the keynote speech of the European Commission about how to become an evaluator there was a panel discussion why to become an evaluator, from Cyprus, Poland, Slovenia, Hungary and Lithuania. Questions like how do you evaluate the proposal? Where do you start? What are you looking at in the project as an evaluator? What are the advantages (and disadvantages) of being an “evaluator”? and many more were answered.

The recording of this event can be found on LINO YouTube channel.
