IPDET 2.0 pre-registration
EPDET 2018 was planned on 16 – 21 September 2018 in Prague, Czech Republic. Following an agreement between the World Bank´s Independent Evaluation Group, EPDET (European Program for Development Evaluation Training), the Center for Evaluation at the Saarland University (CEval) and the University of Bern, this year's EPDET program has been merged into IPDET 2.0. This decision by EPDET and IPDET to merge their respective programs under one umbrella – IPDET 2.0 – will support greater alignment for meeting the needs of the international evaluation community, allow for more streamlined and updated educations offerings, and for tailoring evaluation training to the needs of the different regions. We are delighted that the leadership of EPDET Daniel Svoboda and Dyma Svec will be involved in the delivery of the IPDET 2.0 program. Individuals who had signed up for the EPDET program in Prague can re-register for the IPDET program in Bern until the end of April 2018 at http://www.ipdet.org/. The participation of evaluation stakeholders from Central and Eastern Europe is highly welcomed.
