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.
