The COIN Open Days are one-day (or half-day) workshops that bring together researchers and policy analysts from the European Commission, international organisations, think tanks and the academia with scientists of the European Commission’s Competence Centre on Composite Indicators and Scoreboards (COIN) with a view to discuss together how to further improve their monitoring tools ‒ be those indicator frameworks, scoreboards, composite indicators‒ and to ensure that these tools are developed using the highest standards in composite indicator methodology.

How can I prepare myself for a COIN Open Day?
After receiving confirmation that your request has been accepted:
- The JRC-COIN team will share a protocol for discussion that builds on the 10-step guide of the OECD/JRC Handbook on Composite Indicators.
- A couple of days before the COIN Open Day, you are welcome to share some background documentation on your monitoring tool with the JRC-COIN team.
- During the COIN Open Day, you could either discuss the index/scoreboard going over the material you have shared and/or give a presentation (highly recommended).
