We will co-develop, with Vinnova officials, a shared understanding of what formative evaluation could mean for Vinnova evaluation and programme management practices. We will use a past intervention, the “Forest methanol” project (Skogsmetanol), as a heuristic tool to illustrate what elements of the project management and development would have been conducted differently under different formative evaluation approaches. These will be discussed at a workshop to take place in Stockholm in late January 2019, the results of which will be summarized in a workshop report.
