About EES

The EES was initiated in 1992 and registered in 1996 as a non-profit association. The first official board was elected in autumn 1995 and started its work in January 1996. Since the start of the Society, it has organized thirteen biennial conferences in as many European countries.

The mandate of the European Evaluation Society (EES) is to stimulate, guide and promote the theory, practice and utilization of evaluation in Europe and beyond. Our vision is a world where evaluation contributes to human welfare through social learning. Specifically EES seeks to advance evaluation knowledge and to encourage adoption of good practices by fostering evaluation excellence, independence and partnerships. EES activities aim to support improved enabling environments for evaluation, stronger communities of practice, relevant evaluation research and enhanced evaluation methods.
