EUsers, a success story for the European Commission18-02-2019

The University of Milan Department of Economics, Management and Quantitative Methods led the project which has received recognition from the Directorate General for Education, Youth, Sport and Culture.

To promote the dissemination of innovative approaches to teaching and applied research and contribute to the debate about services of general interest within and outside the European Union.

These are the goals of EUsers: a citizens' perspective on public versus private provision (2014-2017), a project funded under the Erasmus+ Jean Monnet program and headed by the University of Milan Department of Economics, Management and Quantitative Methods, which has been recognized as a success story by the European Commission, Directorate General for Education, Youth, Sport and Culture.

A detailed report regarding the Erasmus+ Project Results Platform was dedicated to the EUsers project, which was conducted under the supervision of Massimo Florio, Professor of Finance at the University of Milan, in collaboration with five other universities (Abo University, Wu Wirtschaftuniversität Wien, the University of Leipzig, the University of Greenwich and the University of Rouen).

The success stories reported by the European Commission concern completed projects which stand out because of their impact and contribution to the development of public policy, for their innovative results and/or creative approach and for being a source of inspiration for other projects.

And the EUsers project is indeed a success story, as confirmed by a series of activities and data that has earned prestigious recognition from the EU: 45 promoted seminars; 5 international workshops; 1500 participants and over 310 speakers from universities, communities and policy makers, national and international institutions and professional organizations; the birth of a new course, 'European regulatory economics' (2015-2017), in which about 300 students were involved; a summer school for graduates and doctoral students from over 300 institutions, as well as the publication of the book, The reform of Network Industries, evaluating privatization, regulation and liberalization in the EU (ELGAR publishing, 2017), with content based on the research activities of EUsers.
