JRC Week on Composite Indicators and Scoreboards
Nov 05 2018
Nov 09 2018

The JRC Week on Composite Indicators and Scoreboards is an annual five-day event.

Local and international policy and decision makers, academics, think tanks, and practitioners in a wide range of socio-economic fields learn from best practices and showcase their capacity to inform policies through the use of indicator systems that summarise multidimensional concepts from social rights and social trust to innovation and competitiveness.

  • What are the state-of-art methods to develop and audit indices and scoreboards?
  • How much faith can we have in multidimensional frameworks and how can common pitfalls be avoided?
  • How can indices and scoreboards better inform policy and be communicated to the wider public?
  • What already successful tools can be further adopted?

The training (05-07 Nov) offers lessons learnt from the JRC assessments of more than 100 well-known composite indicators and scoreboards.

The community of practice meeting (08-09 Nov) offers a unique opportunity for networking and practical exchange of experiences across a wide range of key policy areas that are monitored through composite indicators and scoreboards.

The event is open to all (researchers, policy analysts) with an interest in informing policies through multidimensional indicator frameworks (scoreboards, composite indicators). There are no registration fees.
