Fondazione Cariplo’s Osservatorio

Fondazione Cariplo’s Osservatorio is a research team that produces intelligence and provides the knowledge base for the Foundation’s strategic planning and actions. It helps the Foundation and its bodies to:

1. capture social change and understand the evolving needs of people in the areas covered by the Foundation programs;
2. identify the actions the Foundation can take to respond effectively to social change and thus fulfill its mission and role of ‘entity that supports social innovation’. via:

1. insight into emerging needs or the development of social issues already addressed by the Foundation.
2. advice and management, identifying the actions that can be taken to solve problems, and the operational tools that can be used to achieve goals, consistently with the Foundation’s role of ‘entity that anticipates needs and supports social innovation’.
