    • The impact of Digital Intermediaries in the Emilia - Romagna Region based on the local implementation of the MIREIA project Grazia Guermandi – Regione Emilia-Romagna (IT)
    • Pane e InternetBread and Internet (B&I) • “B&I” is the main e-inclusion programme of the Telematics Plan of the Emilia-Romagna Region – Started in 2009 • Targets: citizens and e-inclusion intermediaries – 725 digital literacy courses – 10.500 citizens – 190 municipalities in the E-R Region 2
    • Pilot case for MIREIA • B&I selected as Pilot case for 'testing' the methodological approach of the Impact Assessment framework developed by the European Commission's Joint Research Centre – Institute for Prospective Technological Studies (JRC-IPTS) http://is.jrc.ec.europa.eu/pages/EAP/eInclusion/MIREIA.html 3

    • From Digital literacy to ICT for employability  “Bread, Internet & Jobs” (B&I&J) • A specific action created to test MIREIA in ´real-life´ • to evaluate improvements in employability • to verify the effects on users´ behaviors • MIREIA used a robust methodology for testing hypothesis • Counterfactual analysis with Randomized Control Trial 5
    • Implementation of the B&I&J Pilot for MIREIA • 14 training courses of the Employment centres • provinces of Parma, Bologna and Rimini • Target: unemployed citizens • TG = 148 people tested ex-ante, ex-post, after 3 weeks; • nTG = 100 people reached interviewed in May 2013 Piacenza Parma Unemployment Rate 6.32% Ferrara Modena Bologna Reggio Emilia Ravenna Unemployment Rate 6.91% Forlì-Cesena Rimini Unemployment rate: Emilia-Romagna Italy 7.08% Italy 10.70% Unemployment Rate 6.91% 6
    • Key results of the MIREIA piloting 1/3 • Behavioral changes in job searching methods: • TG has increased the use of internet tools for job searching Often Quite often Behavioural changes in on-line job searching (t-stud0,001) Sometimes Never 7
    • Key results of the MIREIA piloting 2/3 • Behavioral changes in internet use for job searching: • the number of job offers has increased for TG candidates Absolute numbers Behavioural changes in on-line job searching (t-stud0,001) Key Behavioural Changes Proxy of expected impact 8
    • Key results of the MIREIA piloting 3/3 • ´Nudge´ effects on local communities • trained people help other people in learning how to use Internet for job searching 9
    • Lessons learned from MIREIA • The application of MIREIA-IAF in ER provides evidence of: • the importance of the role of eInclusion intermediaries for promoting digital inclusion and employability • the need to equip eInclusion intermediaries with instruments and methodologies for impact assessment • the need of strengthening coordination of activities at regional level involving local partners • the need to develop an Impact assessment “culture” at the local level, through seminars, training and workshops 10
    • Added Value: the key role of intermediaries • Intermediaries • allow to address more specific actions to targeted groups • are able to engage target groups quickly and effectively • contribute strengthening the positive effects of e-Inclusion initiatives 11
    • Recommendations • Introduce Impact assessment instruments, such as MIREIA, in policy planning and monitoring • Crucial role of counterfactual evaluation • Take into account methodological challenges • e.g. privacy issues and selection of control groups • Share evidence gathered as knowledge base for better integrating policy and implementation actions • Impact assessment as strategic planning support 12
