The JRC Week on Composite Indicators and Scoreboards brings together over 100 academics, policy makers, data and policy analysts with a common interest in multidimensional indicator frameworks to inform policy making.
The JRC Week on Composite Indicators and Scoreboards is an annual event during which local and international policy makers, 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.
This year the JRC Week on Composite Indicators and Scoreboards will convene online for the first time. Over the course of four half-days, participants will learn about quality-controlled methods for developing and analysing indicator frameworks and the efforts that are needed in terms of data collection, analysis and visualisation of indices and scoreboards. The training will offer lessons learnt from the JRC assessments of more than 100 well-known composite indicators and scoreboards. The questions below and more will be explored during the training:
- 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 on Composite Indicators and Scoreboards offers an ideal opportunity to share political and technical challenges in building multidimensional frameworks, create new collaborations and stay up to date with the latest developments on composite indicators as well as on data visualisation tools.
The JRC Week is open to all with an interest in informing policies through multidimensional indicator frameworks.
