Monitoring and Evaluation for responsible innovation

A conference on taking responsibility in M&E for systemic change
Wageningen University and Research centre

Expectations about evaluation are shifting away from mainly assessing goal achievement to asking if the goals themselves can be considered responsible and how can we become more aware and critical of unexpected effects. Triggered in part by the undeniably urgent social and environmental crises, this shift asks of those involved in monitoring and evaluation to be clear which questions must be asked, what competencies are needed to do this, which conversations with who matter, and who is accountable for transformative innovation. The concept of ‘responsible innovation’ can help inspire those engaged in monitoring and evaluation to contribute responsibly for a sustainable and equitable future.

The first two confirmed keynote speakers are: Dr. Irene Guijt on “From responsible innovation to responsible monitoring and evaluation” and Professor Phil MacNaghten, who will talk about Responsible Innovation, International Development and the Challenge for Evaluation.
