Seminar series: Evaluation of safety and security policies

GSSI and CNR-IRCrES organize an online seminar series that will present some research studies on the evaluation of safety and security policies.
The risks addressed by these policies appear to be very far from each other, nevertheless they share some common features and issues than represent a common ground for researchers. For this reason, the seminars will open the discussion over the boundaries of the community of field specialists, with the goal of building a common wisdom as economists. We will explore new concepts and methods to afford the huge challenges that socio-economic analysis and impact evaluation face when addressing safety and security.

January 26th Evaluation and Road Safety Policies: the Case of Speed Limits
February 23th Evaluation of Occupational Safety Incentives
March 30th Economics for disaster preparedness
April 27th Economic analysis and evaluation of cybersecurity (to be confirmed)
