A peer review of the four provincial programmes was launched

The regional councils of the provinces of Southwest Finland, Uusimaa, Kanta-Häme and Kymenlaakso have decided to carry out the evaluation of their provincial programmes in the form of a peer review between the councils. The peer review started on 30.9. with an evaluation workshop in Turku, launching a series of four evaluation workshops.

The role of MDI is to ensure that the evaluation process proceeds as planned, that the necessary material is generated in the process and that the results of the evaluation are described in a concise and illustrative report. MDI supports the evaluation of provincial programmes by, among other things, being responsible for the implementation of evaluation workshops and the sparring of evaluators. MDI is also responsible for the final summary, but does not participate in the content evaluation of the provincial programmes.
