7th Milan Summer School, 18-23 September 2017, Milan, Italy
This School offers an intensive learning experience focused on the ex-ante appraisal (Cost Benefit Analysis) of Major Projects asking for co-financing under the European Structural and Investment Funds in the programming period 2014-2020. It is structured into two modules by combining the need to provide an overview and introduction to principles and methods of CBA and, at the same time, to offer a more in-depth understanding of sectoral applications.
Module I: General principles and methods of CBA (18-20 September).
It is designed for beginners who have limited knowledge and previous exposure to CBA or those who want to refresh their knowledge of the conceptual framework of CBA based on the approach of the new Guide.
Module II: Sector applications of CBA (20-23 September).
It is designed for those who are already familiar with the CBA techniques, have previous exposure to CBA or have attended Module I (or past editions of the school). It offers practical applications on the following sectors: Transport, Environment, Research and Urban Development sectors.
The two Modules can be attended separately or in sequence. The latter is the best solution to gather full acquaintance of CBA principles and applications.
This year the school will take place in combination with an international workshop focusing on the role of CBA in government decision-making which is jointly organized by the Society for Benefit-Cost Analysis, University of Milan and CSIL. The workshop is scheduled on September 20th, 2017. Participants of both Module I and II will be offered the opportunity to join this event as part of their training programme. More information available here.
The School faculty consists of experts with an extensive and hands-on experience in the design, implementation and review of infrastructural projects. Lectures involved include also experts from the team involved in the preparation of the new edition of the Guide to Cost Benefit Analysis of Investment Projects including the authors, technical advisors and academic peer reviewers.
