European Evaluation Society (EES) is excited to announce the next event in our online webinar series Transforming Evaluation:
Evaluation in Turbulent Times: Navigating the Evolving Big Data Ecosystem. This event will take place over the course of two days, 18 & 19 January 2021, from 15:00-16:30 CET / 9:00-10:30 ET.
This panel of evaluation leaders will review cutting edge data science technologies for exploiting the huge volumes of increasingly diverse data generated by government agencies, donors, research institutions and non-profits, and examine the methodological, organisational, political and ethical challenges facing evaluators as they transition to the big data ecosystem. The panel will also discuss the organisational and strategic challenges facing evaluation offices as they adapt to the rapidly changing data landscapes and will draw lessons from how evaluation activities are already being restructured to address the challenges of Covid-19.
