Evaluation of the European Heritage Label action
In December 2017, the PPMI commenced the implementation of a service contract awarded by the European Commission's Directorate General for Education and Culture to evaluate the European Heritage Label action. This evaluation aimed to assess the implementation of the action during its first six years of existence (2011–2017), with a view of improving it in the upcoming period.
The evaluation examined the European Heritage Label action against five criteria: relevance, coherence, efficiency, effectiveness, and EU added value. In addition, it sought to answer fundamental questions, such as whether the action is sustainable, whether its geographical scope should be widened, and whether it should be continued. Two broad types of data collection methods were used: desk research, and stakeholder consultation. The latter included an open public consultation (OPC), interviews and focus groups.
The assignment was completed in February 2019. For more information on the PPMI’s experience in evaluation, please contact Vitalis Nakrošis.
