Feedback and Testimonials
Delegates feedback from … course, answering "What did you find most useful about the course?":

He has developed some original models for quantitative program evaluation, such as models for continuous treatment, neighbourhood interaction, as well as nonparametric extensions of previous models. In terms of applications, Giovanni’s research activity has focus mainly on measuring quantitatively the effects of technological policies on firm economic and technological performance.

His contribution within the econometrics of program evaluation is also computational; He has performed several Stata routines for implementing program evaluation techniques.
