Through his work as an analyst at CERI, Centre for Educational Research and Development at the OECD, he is part of the pioneering research group, which has established an international reputation because of its concern with emerging trends and how universities should act according to them in a time frame of 10-15 years.
Avvisati is currently working on The Strategy for Education and Training, which examines the links between education and innovation and thus which competencies will be needed in increasingly knowledge based societies. At The conference Suitable for Business 2012 Avvisati will present CERIs work on the demand for skills in future labour markets and how education - and in particular of the social sciences and humanities - can contribute in preparing academic students for innovation-driven societies.
Prior to joining the OECD, Avvisati worked as a researcher and lecturer at the Paris School of Economics and at the French Ministry of Labour. He holds a PhD in Economics from The Paris School of Economics.
