Network of Evaluation Societies in Europe (NESE)
NESE is the collaboration of network of national evaluation societies and networks in Europe. NESE is established within the European Evaluation Society (EES) since 2008. The work is moderated jointly by an EES Board member and a national evaluation society on a bi/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.
The Hellenic Evaluation Society is a NESE member since 2014. During the Biannual NESE meeting of May 2021, the Hellenic Evaluation Society was elected to hold the presidency of the NESE Advisory Board for the period 2021-2023.
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.
