Implementation/Impact evaluation of Support Programme for Industrial Innovation

Description

This report presents an implementation/impact evaluation of the Support Programme for Industrial Innovation (SPII) for the thirteen year period 2000/01 - 2012/13. The purpose of this evaluation is to provide insight into the effectiveness and efficiency of the current model of implementation of SPII, assess the impact of SPII and to determine how the beneficial impacts can be strengthened.

Although this was initially considered an impact evaluation in the Terms of Reference (ToR), the limited availability of data has constrained this evaluation’s ability to robustly identify and attribute impact in all instances, and so focus is also given to the implementation factors that both limit and enhance SPII’s impact. A broader recommendation for further evaluations is to conduct evaluability assessments of the projects and programmes to be evaluated prior to the finalisation of the ToRs to provide insight into the type of evaluation that can be conducted.
