Abstract: SKEP ERA-NET is a partnership that aims to improve the coordination of environmental research in Europe. This report is a result of  Work Package 3 of the SKEP ERA-NET, led by the Finnish Environment Institute (SYKE) and the Finnish Ministry of the Environment (FiMoE). SKEP ERA-NET is part of the ERA-NET scheme, which is one of the tools of the European Union to create an integrated European Research Area for innovative knowledge production. The report concentrates on the mid-term and ex-post evaluation of environment-related research programmes. It synthesises experiences of programme evaluations by reviewing evaluation literature and analysing material that has been collected from various research funding agencies. The material includes both written documents and interviews. The report also presents outcomes of an evaluation-related workshop held in spring 2007. Different approaches are provided concerning the planning of programme evaluation and choosing the type, focus and methods of the evaluation. Special attention is paid to the challenges of evaluating the societal and environmental outcomes of a research programme. The utilisation of the evaluation results is also covered. As the ERA-NET scheme aims at increasing supranational research collaboration in the form of e.g. joint research programmes, one part of the report is devoted to the evaluation of jointly coordinated and funded research programmes.
