 Brief description of your activity focus
Collegio Carlo Albertos is to foster research and education in the social sciences

 Details about Expertise / Competences / Technologies
The main areas of research focus are Economics, Finance, Public Policy and Law, with most research projects
spanning these areas in an interdisciplinary fashion. Indeed, about 70% of the Collegios scientific production is
explicitly meant to contribute to the policy debate (in Italy and in broader arenas). An even higher percentage of
output employs investigation tools which are part of the standard language of economics and finance.A significant
number of Collegio scholars work on issues related to household decision making. A number of important economic
and social decisions are taken within the context of households, for example marriage and fertility, decisions to
enter/exit the labor market or to take/reject a job, financial decisions involving real estate and retirement
planning. Understanding the interplay of policy with such decisions is becoming increasingly important in a
society, like ours, which faces ever tighter public budgets accompanied by demographic changes related to an
ageing workforce on one side and an increase in immigration on the other side.
Another policy aspect, which is increasingly important in the presence of the conditions described above, is the
design of institutions that achieve their stated goals in the most efficient manner, and in way which is as much as
possible robust to the details of their environment. The study of institutional design and its effects, be it at the
level of the European Union, of a municipality, or of the family-owned medium-size firm, marks another group of
research projects being conducted at the Collegio. As some institutions - e.g., the labor market, the financial
markets - relate also to household decision making, it is clear that there is a significant overlap between these two
clusters of research projects.
Frontier work like the one sketched above often requires advanced and novel quantitative tools. This is an area
where the Collegio excels, thanks also to the Statistics Initiative undertaken jointly with the Fondazione de Castro.
Finally, the Collegio hosts several research networks (BRICK, CeRP, CHILD, CLEI, Labor, URGE), some of which
predate the establishment of the Collegio itself, that share its emphasis on interdisciplinary work within
Economics, Finance and Public Policy.
