The European Values Study (EVS) was one of the first established collaborative projects in the social sciences in Europe. Since 1981, every nine years a large academic-driven survey is carried out simultaneously in a growing number of European countries. The aims are to: - provide valuable data about the values of populations in European countries, allowing for comparative research on relevant economic and cultural units; - measure social change and its effects, such as the process of globalisation and individualisation, by repeating two-thirds of the questions from one wave to the next; - deepen knowledge about each participating country, allowing for cross-country comparisons and showing convergences and divergences; - offer to the scientific community a platform to freely and quickly access these data and exchange about related research.In the fourth wave in 2008, the EVS achieved an almost perfect coverage of Europe with 47 participating countries and over 70’000 interviews. The Swiss participation was coordinated by FORS. The present application aims to ensure the preparation of the fifth wave in Switzerland, to be fielded in early 2017.
