Over the last 40 years CERGAS has been one of the leading influences on Italian National Health System helping shape the way society thinks about health and health care. CERGAS contributes to relevant and timely research within the healthcare sector, while simultaneously bringing new and advanced levels of empirical and analytical knowledge to the field.
Since 2017, CERGAS has become an integral part of a newly established Division for Government, Health and Non Profit of SDA Bocconi School of Management. Integration of CERGAS in the new Division aims to further reinforce the link between research and training activities in the field of health and healthcare which is envisaged as bidirectional. Scientifically rigorous and highly relevant research will foster innovation in knowledge transfer through training initiatives. On the other hand, innovative training formats and close networking with decision makers will generate new ideas for research and shed light on gaps requiring new knowledge and competencies.
The final aim is to contribute to the improvement of decision making process in healthcare systems, at both national and international level.
