Abstract (German)

EASY-ECO besteht aus zwei Konferenzen mit einer dazwischenliegenden wissenschaftlichen Arbeitsphase. Dazu gibt es von 23. - 25. Mai 2002 in Wien den EASY-ECO I Euro-Workshop mit hochrangigen internationalen Wissenschaftern aus dem Bereich Evaluation von Nachhaltiger Entwicklung unter Beteiligung einer Gruppen von Jungforschern geben.<P></P>Ziel dieses Euro-Workshop ist es, die weit verstreuten Forschungsarbeiten zur Evaluation Nachhaltiger Entwicklung zu systematisieren und einen interdisziplinären theoretischen Bezugsrahmen zu erstellen sowie die Beiträge und Grenzen der einzelnen Disziplinen zur Evaluation von Nachhaltigkeit zu beleuchten. Daraus wird ein Leitfaden für eine Analyse der Evaluationspraxis in Europa erstellt. Anhand dieses Leitfadens werden Jungforscher mit Unterstützung durch das Scientific-Board (bestehend aus internationalen Top-Experten), dem Projektkoordinator (Professor Uwe Schubert) und das Team des Forschungsschwerpunkts Nachhaltigkeit und Umweltmanagement in einer 8-monatigen Arbeitsphase vertiefende Studien zur Evaluationspraxis in ihren Heimatländern durchführen.<P></P>Die Ergebnisse aus dieser Arbeitsperiode werden im Rahmen der EASY-ECO II Euro-Konferenz (mit rund 120 Teilnehmern) im Frühjahr 2003 Wissenschaftern, Evaluationspraktikern, Auftraggebern von Evaluationen und der interessierten Öffentlichkeit präsentiert und diskutiert. Daraus soll weiterer Forschungsbedarf abgeleitet werden.


Abstract (English)

EASY-ECO is a Eurpean Conference Series on the Evaluation of Sustainability consinsting of two events:<P></P>(1) The EASY-ECO I European Workshop (May 23 - 25, 2002 in Vienna) is especially designed to show the state of the art of Evaluation of Sustainable Development in Europe, to discuss the interdiscipliniarity of the subject and in particular to figure out possible contributions of each scientific discipline as well as ponting out the limits the different disciplines have to face.
One major aim of the EASY-ECO I will also be to develop a giudeline for young researchers for an investigation of the "state of praxis of evaluation of sustainable development" in their home countries, which they will carry out after EASY-ECO I. The results of EASY-ECO I Workshop and the finding of the young researchers will be presented at the EASY-ECO II European Conference in spring 2003 in Vienna.<P></P>(2) The EASY-ECO II Conference will focus on a broad discussion on the "Evaluation of Sustainable Development" amongst scientiests, practitioners, people commissioning evaluations and the interested public.
