The Science and Innovation for Development Centre (SCiDEV) in Albania is joining Western Balkan ESS Regional Network. As a member of WBESS, SCiDEV will engage towards building and strengthening the network in Albania.

The Western Balkans European Social Survey Regional Network aims to increase participation of the Western Balkan countries in ESS Round 10. It is convened by the Institute for Social Science in Belgrade for promoting the European Social Survey in the Western Balkans as part of the SUSTAIN II project.

SUSTAIN II is a Horizon 2020 project funded from the European Commission and led by the European Social Survey (ESS) from January 2020 until December 2022.

The European Social Survey (ESS) is an academically driven cross-national survey that has been conducted across Europe since its establishment in 2001. Every two years, face-to-face interviews are conducted with newly selected, cross-sectional samples.

The survey measures the attitudes, beliefs and behaviour patterns of diverse populations in more than thirty nations.
