From 2001 he develops an interest in evaluation and was among the first collaborators of the Italian Institute of Evaluation, of which he over time assumes the role of first Director and then CEO. Since 2013 he is also a member of the Board of the Italian Evaluation Association and supports the Evaluation Unit of the Autonomous Province of Trento.
