Fabio served (2004-2012) as Director and President of the Executive Council of IMT Institute for Advanced Studies (www.imtlucca.it).
As the Founding Director of the Institute, he presided over its establishment as an international research university. Unique within the Italian system, IMT represents a remarkable innovation in terms of organization of research, and selection and hiring procedures for faculty and students:
He’s now Professor of Economics and Management at IMT, where he has coordinated the Ph.D in Economics and he serves as the Director of the research unit Axes (Analysis of compleX Economic Systems).
He’s currently visiting research scholar at Harvard University, Dept. of Economics, and at LIDS, the Laboratory of Information and Decision Systems, Massachusetts Institute of Technology.
Fabio graduated in economics from the University of Pisa and he did his doctoral studies in economics and management at the Sant'Anna School of Advanced Studies. From 1991 to 2001 he was at the University of Siena, while from 2001 to 2004 he was a professor of economics and management at the University of Florence. He has visited several institutions including Northeastern University, MIT, the LSE (Sticerd), Sciences Po (OFCE), Stanford University (Scancor). Since 2005, he is a Research Associate at Boston University, Dept. of Physics (http://polymer.bu.edu/staff.html), Center for Polymer Studies, where he collaborates with Gene H. Stanley (http://polymer.bu.edu/hes/) on the analysis of processes of growth at different levels of aggregation.
Fabio combines different methodologies to cover a variety of topics in economics of science and innovation, industrial economics, the economics of health and pensions, and network analysis of large socio-economic systems. He is a leading expert in the economic analysis of biotechnology and pharmaceuticals. He is currently writing a book on growth and instability in economic systems.
He has published in journals such as: Science, Nature Reviews, The Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (cover article, Dec. 27, 2005, vol. 102, n. 52), The Journal of the European Economics Association, The International Journal of Industrial Organization, Management Science, European Management Review, Physical Review E, Physica-A, Revue d'Economie Industrielle, Research Policy, Small Business Economics, Health Affairs, R&D Management, E. Journal of Health Economics, Europhysics Letters, Economics Letters.
Fabio is the President of the CERM Foundation (www.thecermfoundation.com), an independent research institute specialized in analyzing the sustainability of public finances and the economics of health and welfare systems.
He is the Coordinator of The SWITCH Project (http://www.theswitchproject.eu). SWITCH specifically aims at setting up a set of observatories, big data repositories, and analytical platforms on the economics and policy of life sciences, pharmaceuticals, and health systems in Europe.
He served as a member of the Commission on Intellectual Property Rights, Innovation and Public Health (CIPIH), World Health Organization, coauthoring the report on Public Health, Innovation and Intellectual Property Rights (2006).
He is a columnist for the Corriere della Sera (2010-onwards), while in the past his editorials were published on Il Sole 24 Ore (2008-9).
Fabio served as member of several Government expert committees in Italy: the Committee on Pricing and Reimbursement for Pharmaceutical Products (1998-2006); the Scientific Committee, National Institutes of Health (2001 -2006); the Pension Expenditure Assessment Board, Ministry of Labor and Social Policies and Ministry of Economy and Finance (2011 – 2012); the Expert Committee for the Assessment of Labor Market Reforms (2012-onwards).
He has authored several reports for the European Commission, on the structure and competitiveness of European high-tech industries, such as pharmaceuticals, biotechnology, and medical devices.
He has coordinated several research projects funded by national and international agencies and foundations. He was the director of EPRIS (European Pharmaceutical Regulation and Innovation Systems), a research initiative supported by the Merck Foundation. He has given talks and lectures at, among the others: The Council of Foreign Relations, the Royal Institute of International Affairs, World Economic Forum, NBER, London School of Economics, MIT, Stanford University, Columbia University, UC Berkeley, the OECD, École des Mines, École Polytechnique, The John’s Hopkins University, the AAAS.
