The research project “Cost/Benefit Analysis in the Research, Development and Innovation Sector” aims at developing and testing a model for evaluating Big Science. The developed model will enable funding agencies to assess the potential future net social benefits generated by a research infrastructure and the uncertainty and risks associated to it. See the video and the power point presentation to further info on the purposes of the project.
The project team is composed by the Departments of Economics, Management and Quantitative Methods (DEMM) and Physics of the University of Milan and the independent research centre CSIL. See team for more information.
The project is financed by the European Investment Bank Institute (EIB Institute) in the frame of its EIB University Research Sponsorship Programme (EIBURS), which provides grants to EU University Research Centres working on research topics and themes of major interest to the Bank. The call for proposals launched by the EIB Institute is available here.
