"Evaluating business support measures: The Bayesian Network approach", new article published by CSIL researcher

April 2018, 

CSIL experts Emanuela Sirtori and Francesco Giffoni, together with Silvia Salini from the University of Milan, authored a new article on Bayesian Network Analysis, which was published on SAGE journal Evaluation.

In the article, authors address a new approach to evaluate business support measures and show how Bayesian Network Analysis can be applied in combination with theory-based evaluation as a new mixed-method approach to reveal the mechanisms, both expected and unknown, which explain the changes in firms’ behaviour and economic performance linked to public support.
