Skills and expertise

Rossella Bardazzi has devoted part of her research activities to the theoretical and empirical analysis of several issues at the European level. She belongs to the international network of macromodel builders INFORUM (Interindustry Forecasting at the University of Maryland) and she has evaluated the economic effects of 2004 EU enlargement with these multisectoral models in a study for the European Commission. As expert in multisectoral modelling, she belongs to the International Input-output Association (IIOA) for which she has been elected as a council member. She has been involved in the EU-funded DIECOFIS project of building microsimulation models for firms to evaluate fiscal reforms (including environmental taxes) which are very high on the European agenda. More recently, she has studied empirical issues related to the effects of market-based tools on energy consumption of firms and households. She has been the coordinator of a Jean Monnet Module in the years 2012-2015 “Empowering Europe: Energy, Security and Environment”. She has many-years’ experience in lecturing both at the undergraduate and at the graduate level. Her teaching activities have largely been focussed on European economic issues including the European economic governance and the EU energy markets.
