Call for Applications

The Manlio Rossi-Doria Centre for Social and Economic Research,,  is a leading academic institute at Roma Tre University. Its research and advanced training activities focus on economic development, internationalization of firms, public policies and European integration.
This year the Centre will hold its fourth annual “School for Advanced Training in Public Policy Impact Evaluation. Concepts, Methods, Applications.”
The organizing committee includes Mara Giua, Anna Giunta, Guido Pellegrini and Luca Salvatici.
The School will be held online.


The School is designed for government officers, administrators, private professionals, researchers and doctoral students with an interest in public policy assessment. The objective is to provide participants with the skills for an overall policy assessment, by going through the techniques in close association with the specific context of the policies analysed.



With reference to the territorial, industrial and commercial policies and programs, the School’s didactic curriculum relies on three pillars:


The definitory elements of the policy (for instance, policy maker’s objectives, program beneficiaries, contextual factors) and how they can be identified.


The tools to assess the policy’s impact. How to select the most suitable for the specific context and how to apply it.


The practice of the policy’s impact evaluation. How to carry out the assessment exercise, useful data sources, software and main statistics packages.

Each module comprises both classroom lectures (Concepts, Methods) and laboratory exercises (Applications). Participants will also be provided with multimedia material designed specifically to teach basic background knowledge and skills preliminary to the course (notions of econometrics, tutorials on the use of such software as Stata and GAMS, tutorials on navigating the main databases).
