The Friedensau Institute for Evaluation (FIFE) is a self-governing consulting, research and educational institution of Friedensau Adventist University, Germany.

Our work results are based on pure scientific research. We also utilise these results for academic and professional interactions through public seminars, technical reports and special publications. We contribute conceptually and methodologically to the development of evaluation research. Our focus on international partnerships and country specific contexts are part of our numerous strengths.
