The Swiss Evaluation Society, SEVAL, was founded in 1996 to encourage dialogue and the exchange of information and experience about evaluation between politics, public administration, universities and consulting firms and to promote the quality and dissemination of evaluations.

The SEVAL now has some 500 members from all parts of the country. Members come from state universities (including the universities of applied sciences), private sector institutions (such as research offices) and the political and administrative sector (at all levels of the Confederation, i.e. the municipalities, cantons and universities).

Its priorities for 2018-2021 are: to strengthen its position as a professional association and develop measures aimed at improving evaluation quality and quality assurance. The goal is to promote evaluation skills and competences and have them better acknowledged and valued.
