The Swiss Evaluation Society (SEVAL) and its newsletter


The Swiss Evaluation Society (SEVAL) is an association that promotes the exchange and improvement of evaluation information. It also promotes the improvement of experiences between politics, administration, universities, NGOs and the private sector.

The SEVAL was founded in 1996 and is the result of the National Science Foundation sponsored Research Program 27. The goal of this Research Program was the evaluation and improvement of the effectiveness of public policies.

The SEVAL has developed its own evaluation standards, the SEVAL Standards. They build an important basis for promoting the quality of evaluation (see strategy of the SEVAL 2018-2021: PDF in German or French.)

This association has working groups and organizes conferences and courses on a regular basis.

Today the SEVAL has more than 500 members, representing a much broader practice than the initial focus on evaluating public policies. Nowadays, the SEVAL members promote the evaluation of products, projects and services and teach courses about evaluation on different levels.

The SEVAL has a free electronic newsletter available every quarter for non-members . This newsletter informs about the SEVAL activities, its ongoing and advanced training and new publications in the evaluation field.
