International Festival for Business 2016: Evaluation Project

IFB2016_LogoLiverpool Vision has commissioned an independent evaluation of the IFB2016 from specialist consultants, in line with good practice and its responsibilities to its partners.  

The methodology for the evaluation was derived from that used for the IFB2014, which was developed with advisors appointed by the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills.

The interim report of the project was completed in November 2016.  Information about the results is available here.

A further round of research is taking place in Summer 2017, again involving an online survey.  This will result in the publication of a ‘one year on’ evaluation report in Autumn 2017.
