We are doing science for policy
The Joint Research Centre (JRC) is the European Commission's science and knowledge service which employs scientists to carry out research in order to provide independent scientific advice and support to EU policy.
Sergio Consoli, Ph.D., is currently a Scientific Project Officer at the European Commission, Joint Research Centre (JRC), in Ispra (Italy), working at the Centre for Advanced Studies on the project Big data and forecasting of Economic developments which aims at exploring novel big data sources and methodologies to provide better economic forecasting.
Previously Sergio was a Senior Scientist (2016-2018) within the Data Science department at Philips Research, Eindhoven (NL), focusing on advancing automated analytical methods used to extract new knowledge from data for HealthTech applications. Formerly he worked as Computer Engineering Officer at the Italian Presidency of the Council of Ministers (2015-2016), as Junior Researcher at the Semantic Technology Laboratory (STLab) at the National Research Council of Italy (2013-2015), as Postdoctoral Grantholder at the European Commission, Joint Research Centre (JRC) (2011-2013), and as ICT consultant at the Isab refinery, the largest oil refinery in the Mediterranean area (2009-2011).
