Description:
FBK-IRVAPP [https://irvapp.fbk.eu/about-us/] FBK-IRVAPP is a research centre primarily aimed at carrying out public policies analysis using counterfactual impact evaluation tools. In particular, FBK-IRVAPP conducts evaluation research in the following areas: active and passive labour policies; education policies; family policies; health policies; welfare policies; industrial policies; development policies. FBK-IRVAPP generally conducts ex-post evaluations. Recently, though, the Institute has been engaged as well in ex-ante evaluation through micro simulations and experimental economics. Along with its research activity, IRVAPP deals with the training of researchers, officials and public administrators on impact evaluation issues and on how to use empirical evidence to enhance the design of public policies.

Collaboration with:
Girls code it better [see more at http://www.girlscodeitbetter.it/#/home]
Country:
Italy
Description:
The program Girls Code It Better has been implemented in Italian middle schools and financed by MAW- Men at Work since 2014 (http://www.girlscodeitbetter.it) . Negative gender stereotypes are particularly salient in STEM fields (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) that offer important job opportunities, but in which women are historically underrepresented. The purpose of this project is fight against these cultural gender stereotypes, creating Girls Clubs, in which female students learn new technologies (as 3D printing and robotics), web and app design. A professional “maker” and a teacher of the school supervise the clubs for a total number of 45 hours in the early afternoon (16-20 meetings) from November until March. Potentially, this project can have substantial impact on the educational and occupational careers of female students, but also strong implications on the perception of gender roles and abilities in the whole school. Indeed, the project developed by the Girls Clubs is then presented to the whole school. In addition, the interaction between professional makers and teachers can have positive externalities on teaching practices implemented during regular classes in STEM fields. The collaboration with Girls Code It Better - Fondazione Officina Futuro and Michela Carlana (Harvard Kennedy School) aims at assessing the impact of the program
