myEVS is a Survey Project Management Platform – SMAP developed under the SERISS project. EVS piloted the development of a virtual collaborative platform that works with regionally distributed networks.
Since autumn 2017, the myEVS portal has been the only and central place for the communication and collaboration of the national and central teams conducting the survey. It helps them to define and comply with workflows and standards, and creates a pleasant environment for organizing their daily work.
myEVS is the virtual collaborative environment used by EVS to organize and manage the latest wave of data collection. To discover more about its features, see Angelica Maineri and Masoud Davari introducing MyEVS and SMaP.
The announcement of the second data pre-release gained a lot of interest also on Twitter (see here and here).
The showcase event of SERISS has been a very nice occasion for networking and present EVS and the tools developed during this project. Remarkable for EVS: the presentation of the myEVS (a video is also available here). EVS was present at the event with a stand, organized by the junior scholars at the central team in Tilburg
