Revised ERA-LEARN RIPE Toolkit

European R&I partnerships are an important instrument in the new, ever more ambitious EC framework programme, Horizon Europe. Monitoring their progress and evaluating impacts is vital for both establishing their added value within the complicated landscape that has grown over the years, in addition to informing future steps. The new approach in monitoring and evaluating partnerships as a policy instrument in Horizon Europe is a reality. This approach complements the individual approaches applied by the partnerships and the central approach applied by Horizon Europe in evaluating projects supported by partnerships. The suggested approach has set specific standards and indicators that need to be regularly explained, practiced and mastered both by partnerships and participating states.

In this context, ERA-LEARN has updated the guidance and tools provided by the RIPE toolkit to reflect the new requirements of the new approach. This resulted in the addition of an extra part in the RIPE toolkit – now called Revised RIPE Toolkit, i.e. R²IPE - focusing on the Horizon Europe approach and the BMR requirements. The ‘old’ RIPE part has also been revised to include a comprehensive approach to the Basics in Monitoring & Evaluation that are useful in complementing the BMR-specific part.

Stay tuned for the webinars that will be delivered using the new R²IPE, but also feel free to review it and send us your valuable inputs on how to make it better!"
