The EVA Network aims to cross the thematic boundaries posed by Everyday Aesthetics as a subdiscipline of Anglo-American Aesthetics. The EVAnet was promoted by the University of Palermo (Italy), taking its cue from the increase of conferences and publications on topics related to Everyday Aesthetics carried out in Europe in recent years. The goal of the network is to promote diverse theoretical perspectives and new topics by coordinating the activities of its partners within an institutional framework. The EVAnet includes 13 European institutions; however, the agreement is open to other institutions around the world, which may later apply to join this network.

The network has received the endorsement and support of several scholars, such as Yuriko Saito, Thomas Leddy, and Emily Brady, who originally animated the debate on Everyday and Environmental Aesthetics, and who are part of the network as honorary partners.

Although the network’s name refers to the Aesthetics of the Everyday, the field of research is open to new interpretations and applications that cross and transcend the original thematic boundaries to enhance philosophical thinking about everyday life, orienting it toward new paths.
