Summer School, 9-13 September 2019, Milan, Italy

Registrations for the IX edition of the Milan Summer School in Cost-Benefit Analysis of Investment Projects: principles and sectoral applications are now OPEN.

Date: 9-13 September 2019.


The School is organized by the Department of Economics, Management, and Quantitative Methods of the University of Milan in collaboration with CSIL. It is structured to allow participants to acquire a solid background in different aspects:

  • the general CBA principles and methods (how to design and run a financial, economic, sensitivity and risk analysis),
  • to get an in-depth knowledge of its sectoral application (the typical benefits to consider by sector and the techniques used most frequently to evaluate them) as well as
  • to learn how to efficiently review the quality of a CBA and improve it (practice on real-life cases).

The duration of the attendance can be adjusted depending on availability and specific interest of attendees:

  • The full course (5 days, 9-13 September 2019) is the best solution for those who want to be acquainted with both a solid background on CBA and an applied experience on real-life cases.
  • A shorter (of 3 or 4 days) attendance is also possible. Participation only to the first three days of the school (9-11 September 2019)– focusing on the general principles and methods of the CBA – or four days (9-12 September 2019) with an additional day on sectoral applications, allows not investing a full week if not feasible.
  • The Friday morning session (13 September 2019) on ‘The use of Cost-Benefit analysis in different institutional and policy settings’ is open also to external participants and can be attended as a stand-alone seminar of one day.

Lecturers are experts with a longstanding experience in designing, implementing and reviewing CBA of infrastructure projects. The Faculty includes, amongst others, analysts involved in the preparation of the last edition of the Guide to Cost-Benefit Analysis of Investment Projects, including the authors, technical advisors, and academic peer reviewers. Lecturers and invited speakers come from the University of Milan, CSIL, TPLAN, European Commission, European Court of Auditors, INEA, Jaspers and the Central Project Management Agency of Lithuania.


An early bird fee, for participants from the public sector and universities, is available for applications sent before 30 April 2019.

A special fee is reserved for applications from UNIMI
