2019 JRC Week on Composite Indicators and Scoreboards
The Competence Centre on Composite Indicators and Scoreboards (COIN) of the Joint Research Centre of the European Commission is organising the JRC Week on Composite Indicators and Scoreboards.
The JRC Week is an annual five-day event – three days of training and two days of exchange with like-minded peers in the Community of Practice, with an audience of about 100 participants. Local and international policymakers, academics, think tanks, and practitioners in a wide range of fields, learn from best practices and showcase their capacity to inform policies through the use of indicator systems that summarise multidimensional concepts.
The training, on its 17th edition, provides step-by-step guidance on the process of building composite indicators and scoreboards. It offers lessons learnt from the JRC assessments of more than 100 well-known indices.
- What are the state-of-art methods to develop and audit indices and scoreboards?
- How much faith can we have in multidimensional frameworks and how can common pitfalls be avoided?
- How can indices and scoreboards better inform policy and be communicated to the wider public?
- What already successful tools can be further adopted?
The Community of Practice meeting offers a unique opportunity for networking and practical exchange of experiences across a wide range of key policy areas that are monitored through composite indicators and scoreboards.
The main topics of the 2019 Community of Practice will address: energy transition, climate change, sustainable cities, child wellbeing, African governance, gender equality, artificial intelligence and digitalisation.
The event is open to all (researchers, policy analysists, data journalist) with an interest in informing policies through multidimensional indicator frameworks.
November 4 - 6: Training on Composite Indicators and Scoreboards
November 7 - 8: Community of Practice on Composite Indicators and Scoreboards meeting
