Pursuant to Article 44 of Regulation (EU) 2021/1060, the Member State or the Managing Authority (MA) shall carry out NP evaluations related to one or more criteria such as effectiveness, efficiency, relevance, coherence and Union added value, with the aim to improve the quality of the design and implementation of programmes.

Within this framework, an Evaluation Plan will be drawn up within one year of the NP approval decision and presented to the MC.

The Evaluation Plan provides for an interim evaluation to be completed by 31 March 2024 and an evaluation of the NP impact by 30 June 2029.


The Evaluation Plan and all evaluation documents will be made available on the NP website.
