The Centre for Evaluation’s Biennial Retreat: Places, Spaces, and Contexts

Date: Thursday 6th December 2018

Time: 9.00 – 17.00

Location: etc.venues Farringdon – The Hatton

Our one-day retreat will have a fascinating array of presentations and scientific discussion about all things evaluation. The theme is Places, Spaces, and Contexts, and there will be a range of sessions reflecting our broad collective interests (and plenty of coffee breaks to get deep into discussion). Not only that, but we are very pleased that Rachel Glennerster, chief economist at DFID and founder of J-PAL, will be giving her unique perspective during a keynote presentation on “A framework for addressing the generalisability puzzle by combining local and global evidence”.
