“Evaluation as a Tool for Research, Learning and Making Things Better”– A Conference for Experts of Education, Human Services and Policy 

The conference carries on a tradition that started in 1995 in Huddersfield, England. Since then the focus of the conferences has been on evaluation research with implications for practice in the fields of social work, education, health and other human services.

The 2012 conference, returning to Finland after 10 years, broadens the themes to cover evaluation research in the working life and regional activities.
