INICCO projects exceed targets by 100%, says Indecon evaluation
The final evaluation of the Centre’s 2009-2012 INICCO ‘basket’ of five EU-INTERREG IVA-funded research, information and training projects, by Indecon Economic Consultants of Dublin, has been published.
This covers the Border People cross-border mobility information website; the CroSPlaN cross-border spatial planning network, the cross-border hospital services research project; the Border Region Economy research project, and the Impact Assessment Toolkit for Cross Border Cooperation.
The evaluators conclude that ‘overall the INICCO projects have exceeded the targets set in terms of their activities and impacts on issues confronting the cross-border region despite the challenges faced on some projects. These impacts will be strengthened in the years ahead as the full benefits of INICCO are realised.’
The evaluators found that the Centre had exceeded its target of 14 evidence-based solutions to problems of public sector cross-border cooperation by 100% (28 initiatives completed).
