Collaborations

Collaboration with:
CEPR
Country:
United Kingdom
Description:
From https://cepr.org/about-cepr (see more there) "CEPR is based on what was (in 1983) a new model of organization, a “thinknet”. It is a distributed network of economists, who are affiliated with but not employed by CEPR, and who collaborate through the Centre on a wide range of policy-related research projects and dissemination activities.(..)CEPR’s “thinknet” structure also supports the Centre’s pluralist and non-partisan stance. The Centre actively encourages diversity of opinion and independent thought in its network, with the result that CEPR's output reflects state-of-the-art thinking from a range of perspectives. This helps enrich and enliven policy debates.(..) Today, CEPR’s network of Research Fellows and Affiliates includes over 1,600 of the top economists conducting research on issues affecting the European economy. Researchers are based in their home institutions (universities, research institutes, central bank research departments, and international organisations), and collaborate through the Centre in the pursuit of policy-relevant economic research and dissemination activities.

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
