Evaluation of Showcasing Innovation

CM International appointed as the evaluators of the Showcasing Innovation programme funded by ERDF and delivered by the Centre for Innovation and Partnerships (CIPS) through Newham College of Further Education (NCFE).

The programme provided support for London-based SMEs assisting them in improving their business performance and reducing costs through the utilisation of emerging technologies – principally nanotechnology and radio frequency identification technology (RFID). CMI’s evaluation consists of two phases: a formative evaluation at the interim period of the programme focusing on the management and delivery of the programme; and, a summative evaluation assessing its outputs, outcomes and impacts. The research followed the London ERDF Programme Evaluation Toolkit standards.
