Supporting innovative research and evaluation to create a transformative impact.

The Collaborative Evaluation & Research Group (CERG) works in partnership to build evaluation capacity, research and expertise. CERG understands the value of listening to the community and has the ability to deliver timely, rigorous and sustainable evaluations tailored to the needs of a wide variety of organisations. CERG provides training, workshops and mentoring to build capacity to enable organisations to conduct meaningful evaluations.

Our values

  • Innovation: leading innovation in evaluation and research
  • Integrity: commitment to ethical, robust research and evaluation
  • Community: partnering with communities to transform lives

Our approach

CERG is committed to academic rigour, best practice and high quality research. We use a participatory evaluation and co-design framework which puts communities at the heart of evaluation.

We are independent and have a unique ability to bring together high quality cross-disciplinary teams to better suit our partners.

CERG encourages collaboration between higher degree students and our work to address issues of significance, particularly those in a regional setting.

Latrobe Health and Wellbeing Charter

CERG is guided by the values and principals of the Latrobe Health and Wellbeing Charter.
