Ex post evaluation of the European Social Fund (ESF) 2007-2013
In the course of 2014, three ESF 2007-2013 ex post evaluations were carried out by the European Commission. These covered the ESF Priorities Adaptability and Human Capital (grouped under the ex post evaluation on Human Capital), the Integration o Disadvantaged Groups and Access and Sustainable Integration into Employment. Ockham IPS, in collaboration with Fondazione Giacomo Brodolini and Metis, synthesised the results of these thematic ex post evaluations and provided supplementary evaluation syntheses of the ESF Priorities Promoting Partnership and Strengthening Institutional Capacity which were not covered by separate contracts. The ex post evaluation synthesis also includes country reports summarising the outputs and results of the ESF investments across the ESF Priorities and presenting findings and conclusions as well as lessons learned and good practice.
