Network of European Evaluation Societies (NESE)
NESE is the collaboration of Network of Evaluation Societies in Europe. NESE was created in 2008. The work is moderated jointly by an EES Board member and a national evaluation society on an annually rolling basis. In NESE national societies co-operate towards developing mutual knowledge, learning from one another’s good practices, and promoting the evaluation profession in European countries. Currently, the societies hold annual meetings, carry out a regular monitoring survey, and discuss a series of good practice cases. NESE Annual Conference Calendar is a joint initiative of the NESE members with the aim to share the dates and further details of the Annual and Biennial Conferences of the national evaluation societies. Since 30 October 2014, Hellenic Evaluation Society is a NESE member.
Permanent Cooperation Committee for Participation in the International Initiative for Open Government (OGP Forum)
The world-wide initiative “Open Government Partnership (OGP)” aims to secure concrete commitments from governments to promote transparency, empower citizens, fight corruption, and harness new technologies to strengthen governance. Greece is one of the first countries that joined this initiative, by submitting the first National Action Plan for Open Government in April 2012. Main principle of our country's participation in the OGP is the continuous consultation with citizens and organizations at national and international level. Through constant interaction, a cooperative framework is formed that not only allows but also encourages active participation in every stage of the process, from the policy design and the priorities definition to the implementation and evaluation of individual actions in every sector. To ensure these principles, a Permanent Committee is established for the Cooperation in monitoring andimplementation activities of the OGP National Action Plan. The Committee will consist of institutions and organizations representatives of civil society, independent authorities, institutions of political parties, educational and academic institutions, scientific and other associations and by experts. Since 11 January 2015, Hellenic Evaluation Society participates actively in the Permanent Cooperation Committee for Participating in the International Initiative for Open Government.
