Due to the increasing popularity of conducting Participatory Value Evaluation (PVE) during classes and students using the tool for their papers, we decided to establish a PVE thesis circle in February 2020. Within this thesis circle, master students of the faculties Technology, Policy & Management and Civil Engineering of TU Delft as well as students form other Universities in the Netherlands are discussing their thesis work with PVE scholars and team members. Even though the topics of their theses differ, the students have one thing in common: they are all conducting research about the PVE as an participation or evaluation tool.
The group continuously consist around 10-12 students, with new ones joining and graduated ones leaving. The thesis circle meets around once per month, but the students are also organized in an online community for peer learning and exchanging knowledge as well as to increase technical support and lessons-learned.
