ERDF Indicators, Definitions and Evidence Requirements
The monitoring indicators are the outputs and results; outputs are the activities undertaken by the project and results are the direct consequence of the activity. The results follow from the activities, and reflect the key aims of your project. The evaluation indicators are the impacts; the impacts are the longer term consequence of the activity and follow on from the results. The result and impact indicators, therefore, are the most important types of indicator.
Frequently Asked Questions
Why does WEFO collect this data?
WEFO requires all projects to collect a limited selection of data to ensure it meets monitoring and evaluation obligations to the European Commission. In addition this enables WEFO to fully understand the impact funded projects have had as well as answering questions from Welsh ministers, general public etc.
How should the collaboration be counted in the Indicator, 'Collaborative R&D 'where there is a business collaborating with more than one HEI - is it still only one collaboration or more than one, depending on the number of HEIs involved?
We would expect the output to be one as it is a single collaborative R&D project. However, we would expect to see a greater number of results, such as a "new or improved product, process or services launched", i.e. a result for each HEI. It is the increased results from such a collaboration which is important and evidences the added value of it rather than the outputs.
