The DOLFINS project addresses the global challenge of making the financial system better serve society by placing scientific evidence and citizen participation at the centre of the policy process in finance (namely policies aiming to tame systemic risk and to foster sustainable investments). DOLFINS will deliver quantitative tools to evaluate policies, investigate how to engage citizens in the early stages of the policy making process and will develop evidence-based narratives in order to better shape policies in the public interest.

Sigma Orionis leads the activities addressing “Citizen engagement” and contributes to the WPs related to “Policy evaluation” and to “Dissemination”.
