Dear Principal Investigators of the World Values Survey Association,
On behalf of the WVSA Secretariat, we are delighted to inform you that the World Values Survey Association and the European Values Study have concluded a partnership agreement regarding joint data collection in Europe in the next survey wave in 2017. Please, see below in the attached documents the Memorandum of Understanding between the two organizations, stating what is agreed and accepted by both sides. In the other document below you will find a full list of countries implicated by the Agreement.
Following this agreement, WVSA and EVS will remain independent research organizations, but they will coordinate their activities related to planning, organization and implementation of data collection and data sharing in the next wave in European countries. In all these activities WVSA and EVS will cooperate as equal partners.
In European countries in which both organizations have different Principal Investigators, we encourage you to build a joint team in order to undertake jointly all activities required, including fundraising and data collection according to EVS methodology and using EVS questionnaire. Please, note that according to this agreement, both national teams will retain their status as PIs in their respective organizations.
We are confident that coordination of our efforts in the next wave will facilitate implementation of a successful values study in 2017 in all European countries.
Please do not hesitate to contact us, should you have any questions with regard to this agreement or the further procedures.
