To monitor FACCE-JPI joint activities and evaluate the process, already in 2013, the Governing Board adopted a Monitoring and Evaluation Framework document which provided guidelines and identified the following three targets:
- Target 1 - Improve the alignment of national and European research programmes
- Target 2 - Increase high quality transnational research activities within food security, agriculture and climate change
- Target 3 - Improve the societal impact on the challenge of food security, agriculture and climate change
In 2020, a self-evaluation report was published, analysing the progress towards alignment of national and European research programmes (Target 1) and a first assessment of the scientific output in terms of high quality transnational research (Target 2).
The evaluation consisted of a comparative analysis of member countries’ responses to surveys performed in 2016 and 2019, supplemented by a bibliometric analysis of scientific articles published by FACCE-JPI funded researchers and additional data from the Secretariat.
The evaluation revealed increased alignment of national and European research programmes as well as excellent scientific performance of FACCE-JPI's research activities.
