8th Milan Summer School, 10-14 September 2018, Milan, Italy

The School is organized by the Department of Economics, Management, and Quantitative Methods of the University of Milan in collaboration with CSIL. It offers an intensive and participative learning experience focused on the appraisal (Cost Benefit Analysis, CBA) of major infrastructure projects, with a focus on those asking for co-financing under the European Structural and Investment Funds in the programming period 2014-2020. It is structured into two modules by combining the need to provide an overview and introduction to principles and methods of CBA and, at the same time, to offer a more in-depth understanding of sectoral applications.

Module I: General principles and methods of CBA (10-12 September).

It is designed for beginners who have limited knowledge and previous exposure to CBA or those who want to refresh their knowledge of the conceptual framework of CBA based on the approach of the new Guide.

Module II: Sector applications of CBA (12-14 September).

It is designed for those who are already familiar with the CBA techniques, have previous exposure to CBA or have attended Module I (or past editions of the school). It offers practical applications on the following sectors: Transport, Environment, Research and Urban Development sectors.

The two Modules can be attended separately or in sequence. The latter is the best solution to gather full acquaintance of CBA principles and applications.

The School faculty consists of experts with an extensive and hands-on experience in the design, implementation and review of infrastructural projects. The Faculty includes, amongst others, experts 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.


A special fee is reserved for applications from UNIMI
