The final evaluation of 6Aika-strategy

The final evaluation of the 6Aika-strategy reflects on its results and their value in relation to the resources used, the objectives set and the benefits and ’added value’ generated by these activities. The purpose of the evaluation is also to outline various perspectives on the future of urban development. The evaluation will be carried out in co-operation with experts from 4FRONT (Vesa Salminen and Anne Mari Järvelin). The task is organised around four work packages while the criteria for evaluation are relevance, consistency, effectiveness, efficiency and impact. In the first phase, the evaluation includes a document analysis, interviews, indicator analysis using EURA data and an international benchmarking analysis. In this first phase of the work, we will interview the representatives of the management group and the steering group as well as the city coordinators. In the second phase, a municipal survey will be produced in order to map the visibility and impact of 6AIKA activities in other municipalities. The final phase of the project will include results dissemination to the international academic community. Implementation of the work: June 2019-September 2020.
