Therefore, the company has been officially included in the list of recognized research entities that the European Commission draws up and updates on its website.
Eurostat is the statistical office responsible for publishing statistics and quality indicators at the European level, collecting and processing data from the Member States, and promoting the harmonization of statistical methodology. It also collaborates with the National Statistical Institutes and other national authorities of the EU Member States, according to a partnership known as the European Statistical System (ESS).
The recognition for SOSE took place following the evaluation of several criteria, including the scientific activity carried out and the compliance with high technical and infrastructure requirements to ensure data security. Besides compliance with these requirements, Eurostat considers the reputation of the entities that produce and make high-quality research available to the public of great importance.
Under Italian law, SOSE is automatically recognized, through its Research Department as a research body by ISTAT. For its analysis activity and scientific research, the company will access the data held by other Italian administrations participating in the National Statistical System (SISTAN) and all other European statistical authorities of the European Statistical System (ESS).
The SOSE Research Department was created to enhance the company’s core competencies through constant research. This recognition demonstrates and confirms its solidity and credibility in carrying out its activity, producing original contents of great strategic value based on methodologies capable of combining economic-statistical literature and innovative approaches.
The excellent result achieved thanks to teamwork demonstrates, once again, how synergic work can lead to significant and prestigious awards.
