Graduated in Philosophy, I’m currently research fellow at the Research Institute on Population and Social Policies of the CNR.
My research interests relate to the competences frameworks, both for jung people and adults, and life long learning sistems that I have analyzed throughout several research activities.
In the last years I deepened the themes related to the specific framework of competences in the field of creativity and innovation, citizenship and reflexivity; the alternating training and dual systems in Europe; participatory methodologies and approaches applied to the educational process in a school context to promote social and technological innovation, with a specific focus on the Living Lab.
