Impact Monitoring, Evaluation and Learning

Register here.

DIHs play an important role in implementing programmes that support the development of innovative solutions to the world’s pressing problems. In order to increase the effectiveness and impact of these programmes for  participants, it is  important for DIH leaders to be able to monitor progress, evaluate outcomes and learn from evidence. Findings from our research however showed that many DIHs leaders are not well equipped in using MEL tools and strategies to measure and communicate the success of their programmes which in turn affects their ability to raise funding.

AfriconEU, the first Trans-continental Networking Academy for African and European Digital Innovation Hubs in partnership with African Technology Business Network (ATBN) will host a capacity building webinar on “Impact Monitoring, Evaluation and Learning” to provide participants with a basic understanding of best practices for impact monitoring, evaluation and learning to better contribute to the success of their programmes.

The webinar will introduce participants to the basics of impact strategy and  expose them to MEL (Monitoring, Evaluation and Learning) frameworks and practical tools. It will also enable them to understand impact terminologies and language to enable them to better communicate their impact.

Topics to be discussed:

  • Introduction to impact strategy
  • MEL  frameworks and tools
    • Theory of Change
    • Logical Framework
  • Understanding Impact language and communication


Who should attend?

  • Leaders of DIHs (tech hubs, universities, incubators, accelerators)
  • Investors
  • Youth
  • Start-ups
  • Entrepreneurs and entrepreneur support network leaders
  • Digital skills providers
