3ie Delhi Evidence Week 2018 19-20 April
Pushing the frontiers of evaluation effectiveness and excellence: 3ie's first decade Venue: Sheraton Hotel, District Centre, Saket, New Delhi
3ie is turning 10 in May. We have learned a lot about what it takes to produce high-quality evidence that is useful for decision-making. For us, there is no better way to celebrate our milestone anniversary than to host a conference that highlights how evidence makes a real difference in people's lives.
We are pleased to invite you to a special anniversary conference on 19-20 April 2018 in New Delhi. The sessions will challenge us to remain on the frontiers of excellence in evaluation, as you can see in the agenda below.
