Project monitoring and evaluation

We evaluate and monitor project on behalf of funding agencies such as the UK government and the European Commission and can bridge the gap between a project and the commissioners to the benefit of both sides. This has extended to producing audio-visual material to promote and disseminate the results of such projects.

Examples:

  • European Commission - Evaluation of projects for the European funding programmes from Esprit to Horizon 2020.
  • European Commission - Review Monitoring of Projects in the Horizon 2020, ESPRIT and IST programmes. These are usually RTD (research and technological development) or 'best practice' demonstration projects.
  • UK Government Departments - Evaluation and on-going monitoring of projects in the MMDP and ISCA programmes.
  • Design Council - Part of the evaluation panel for the UK's Millennium Design Awards.
  • EC Projects INFOWIN and INFORM - Production of audio-visual material to disseminate results of projects in the ACTS and IST programmes respectively.
