Workshop exploring the application of Cost-Benefit analysis to research infrastructures and major RDI projects

@ Bruxelles, DG RESEARCH (CDMA Building, Room number SDR2)

Objective of the workshop is to present and discuss with experts the methodology developed in the framework of the research project “Cost-Benefit Analysis in the Research, Development and Innovation Sector” sponsored by the EIB Institute and to collect suggestions and comments for adjustments and fine tuning. The format of the workshop is an in-depth discussion of the Draft Final Report describing the CBA model and lessons learned from the two selected cases (i.e. the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at CERN and the National Centre for Oncological Treatment (CNAO) in Pavia (IT)).

2015 Annual Conference and Meeting of the Society for Benefit-Cost Analysis

@ Washington DC, George Washington University Marvin Center

“The Evaluation of Research Infrastructures: a Cost-Benefit Analysis Framework” will be presented at the 2015 Annual Conference and Meeting of the Society for Benefit-Cost Analysis.

The Society for Benefit-Cost Analysis is an international group of practitioners, academics and others who are working to improve the theory and application of the tools of benefit-cost analysis. The 2015 annual conference on Advancing the Policy Frontier will focuses on the link between theory and practice of cost-benefit analysis (CBA), the methods used to estimate particular types of costs or benefits, the application of CBA to specific case studies, the role of CBA in decision making.

Third annual meeting of the Knowledge Programme

@ Luxembourg

The annual meeting provides an opportunity for EIB staff and academics engaged in the activities of the EIB Institute to network and exchange ideas as well as to hear about the Institute’s initiatives under its three programmes, Knowledge, Social and Arts and Culture. The meeting is also a useful platform to discuss new collaborative initiatives between the EIB and academics such as the JASPERS knowledge network. Researchers presented the results of completed and ongoing EIBURS research projects and STAREBEI research internships, and representatives of universities discussed new and ongoing partnership agreements with specific universities and networks.
