Local Economic Development programs can be evaluated using the CIPP (context, input, process and product) model. Context can be seen as the goals for local economic development, the input are the plans to reach those goals, the processes are the actions taken to execute the plans and the product is the outcome of the actions. If the LED programs are effective quality of life of local people and competitiveness of the region should increase. Furthermore, collaboration between all relevant stakeholders should be enhanced more(both public and private sector, entrepreneurs). Lastly, institutions should facilitate the transfer of knowledge from participants through organized and planned events.
