Research is at the core of CRISP activities. A variety of projects are carried out with public and private partners, both within and outside academia, involving multiple themes and competences.
Over the last few years the Centre developed selected lines of research, focusing on methods and systems aimed at the management of information to support decision-making (Business Intelligence). Specific attention is also devoted to the use of administrative information sources for the analysis of territorial dynamics. In this perspective, innovative models have been developed in order to analyse, monitor, and evaluate services and public policies.
The Centre participates actively international research networks, like RESER (the European Association for Research on Services), EUWIN (the European Workplace Innovation Network) and the European Network on Regional Labour Market Monitoring – EN RLMM, established to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of regional labor markets and related policies.
