MAKing Sustainable development and WELL-being frameworks work for policy analysis (MAKSWELL) is a project financed in H2020. MAKSWELL aims to extend and harmonize indicators able to capture the main characteristics of the ‘Beyond GDP’ approach proposing a new framework that includes them in the evaluation of the public policies.

At the same time MAKSWELL improves the existing well-being and sustainable indicators by using new data collection tools and modern statistical methods to have timely and accurate data and by combining new data sources (big data) with traditional ones especially where there are data gaps. The production of local estimates of poverty and living conditions are an example of these objectives. At a macro level the project provides a framework that include specific measures for well-being in the traditional macro econometric models. The project explores also the relationship among well-being and sustainable indicators with policy evaluation.

Scope of the satellite event is to disseminate the research results of the project, encouraging the floor discussion on them, sharing the research experiences and promoting interactive discussions with invited keynote speakers. 

The discussion was focussed on the research results on monitoring of Sustainable Development Goals, their indicators at regional level using non-traditional data sources and nowcasting.

Other particular issues were tackled by specific paper presentations of Makswell members.

Participants were invited to discuss the experiments done by the partners, challenges and opportunities of new sources, frameworks and methods for official statistics that aim to provide innovative policy support frameworks in "Beyond GDP " perspective.
