Evidence based policy at a crossroad
MORE@DIAG: Seminar on "Evidence based policy at a crossroad",
by Andrea Saltelli, JRC European Commission
Friday, 17 April 2015, DIAG Aula A4.
Andrea Saltelli has worked on physical chemistry, environmental sciences, applied statistics, impact assessment and science for policy. His main disciplinary focus is on sensitivity analysis of model output, a discipline where statistical tools are used to interpret the output from mathematical or computational models, and on sensitivity auditing, an extension of sensitivity analysis to the entire evidence-generating process in a policy context. A second focus is the construction of composite indicators or indices. Presently leads the Econometric and Applied Statistics Unit of the European Commission at the Joint Research Centre in Ispra (I). The Unit, with a staff of 30, develops econometric and statistic applications, mostly in support to the services of the European Commission, in fields such as lifelong learning, inequality, employment, competitiveness and innovation.
