CALIPER Summative Evaluation
The present call for tenders applies to the summative evaluation of the H2020 project CALIPER: Linking research and innovation (R&I) for gender equality (GE). The project supports seven research performing organisations (RPOs) and two research funding organisations (RFOs) in nine different European countries (see table 1) in developing Gender Equality Plans (GEPs). In general, summative evaluations are conducted at the end of an intervention (or a particular phase of that intervention) to determine the extent to which anticipated outcomes were produced and is intended to provide information about the worth of the programme (OECD 2002, p. 35). The main aim of the summative evaluation of CALIPER is to gather evidence that can demonstrate the extent to which each individual GEP worked as intended and to which degree external factors have affected its outcomes and impacts in each case.
