Evaluation of the European Social Fund (ESF)

The evaluation project “ESF 2007–2013 OP Bund” consists in an overall evaluation of all the projects of the European Social Fund (ESF) which are carried out in the context of the national operational program in the funding period 2007–2013 in Germany. This includes the monitoring of the ESF data, the data preparation for the yearly reports to the European Commission and ongoing descriptive analyses; examining whether specified goals are attained and whether this is done cost-efficiently; separate evaluations with respect to transnationality and innovation, as well as the goals “equal opportunities” and “sustainable development”; and finally analyses with respect to the coherence of the programme, as well as its implementation and coordination.
