Technopolis Group has deep expertise in many different types of evaluation:

  • Policies and programmes
  • Implementing and funding organisations
  • Regulations and standards
  • Financial engineering instruments
  • Network organisations, particularly in the field of research, technology and innovation policies.

Evaluations include ex-ante impact assessments, mid-term evaluations, peer reviews, ex-post evaluations, short and long-term impact assessments. Our extensive international experience allows us to conduct evaluations at project, programme, portfolio, institutional and innovation system levels.

The team has mastery of state-of-the-art qualitative and quantitative methods (ie. counterfactual analysis using econometrics, impact assessment, cost and benefit analysis, economic modelling) and is constantly upgrading its analytical tools and techniques. For the preparation of evaluation frameworks, we help with the development of indicators and monitoring systems.

Furthermore, we share our experience by offering training interventions to policy makers and practitioners in evaluation and can link evaluation results to programme, policy and organisational redesign
