The Danish Evaluation Institute (EVA)

- knowledge, analyses and resources that contribute to the development of the Danish childcare and education system

Who we are and what we do

EVA is an independent institution operating under the Danish Ministry of Education. We produce knowledge about the Danish childcare and educational system. We publish reports, analyses and evaluations as well as magazines, resources and videos and podcasts.

We are experts on the Danish educational system at all levels – from the early childhood education and care system to primary and secondary schools through upper secondary schools and vocational colleges to universities and adult education.

Our analyses and evaluations are carried out on our own initiative as well as on request from a wide variety of clients, including ministries, municipal authorities, interest groups and educational institutions among others.

The projects we carry out on our own initiative, are funded through the Danish Finance Act. When we work with clients, the project is paid for by the client, but EVA is fully responsible for the design, methodological framework and analyses in the project. We also work with different foundations who want to explore and develop knowledge about the Danish childcare and educational system.
