The European Report on Development is carried out by a team based at the Robert Schuman Centre of the European University Institute in Florence. The team is led by Prof. Giorgia Giovannetti, who provides strategic leadership and intellectual direction. Each year, a team of experts -composed of senior researchers with international reputation-, provides its expertise on the specific topic of the report. The team is complemented by a number of project assistants, responsible for the support of the Team leader and the other Team Members. The Project Director and additional administrative staff round up the ERD team.
