I am an independent research and project manager who has worked for several public and private organizations in Europe, including clients from Belgium, Cyprus, Greece, Israel, Italy, Portugal, Slovenia and the UK. In my career I have been involved in the coordination of (or participation in) about twenty ICT-related R&D and innovation projects at European, national and regional level – many on the topics of eParticipation and eGovernment. For the European Commission, among others, I wrote in 2008 a study for the assessment of the Living Labs approach in the EU innovation and Future Internet scenario. I have done consultancy to several Italian Regions (Piedmont, Apulia, Aosta Valley, Veneto) in topics related to the establishment and management of Living Labs. For the Italian Ministry of Economic Development, Department of Cohesion Policy, I led in 2010-2012 a State-Region Working Group aimed at the establishment of PCP (Pre Commercial Procurement) in public administration practice. Currently I am research associate on Frugal Government at Politecnico di Milano and work for the Ministry of Economic Development, Department of Cohesion Policy, on a project of technical assistance to the Italian Regions engaged in the design of Smart Specialisation Strategies for the new programming period of the Structural Funds 2014-2020.
