NEW paper on the impact pathways of a Synchrotron Light Facility

CSIL researchers recently authored a new international paper on socio-economic impact assessment of research infrastructure published on Annals of Public and Cooperative Economics.

The paper builds on the evidence collected through two surveys to direct and indirect users of ALBA (overall 384 questionnaires collected), in‐depth interviews as well as an analysis of patents’ citations. It draws from a pilot exercise carried out in the framework of the Horizon 2020 Ri‐Paths project (Charting Impact Pathways of Investment in Research Infrastructures). It contributes to the broader discussion on the socio‐economic impact assessment of Research Infrastructures and relevant methodologies and metrics.
