Kick-off meeting of the EVS Standing Group
The Standing Group brings together experts on value research both on substantive and methodological issues combining the expertise of senior scholars and younger researchers. Aiming at renewing the EVS leading bodies in the future, the functioning of the Standing Group builds on the interactions between new involved members and the existing EVS bodies. The group includes 4 members with currently leading roles in the EVS and 10 additional EVS members, who raised the interest of being more involved in the EVS project and showed their engagement in previous EVS activity in combination with good records in scientific publications on value research. The current main tasks of the Standing Group are:
- Evaluation of the EVS2017 questionnaire, taking into account substantive and methodological issues
- Identify the “CORE” of the EVS questionnaire
- Support the development of the SUSTAIN II project by providing timely the inputs required
- Ask advice to the Theory Group and Methodology Group on substantive/methodological issues
With the kick-off meeting on April 14th, 2020, the Standing Group started its activity.
