About us

PoliS-Lombardia, Regional Institute for the Support of Lombardy’s Policies was created on the 1st of January 2018, thanks to the merger of Arifl, the Regional Agency for Education, Training and Employment, in Éupolis Lombardia, the Higher Institute for Research, Statistics and Training. However, the new institute should not be considered as the mere sum of two Public Bodies. The objective of the regional legislator was "to improve the effectiveness and efficiency of regional administrative action in the sectors of the labour market, research and training, through a reorganization of the functions performed by the related bodies" (Article 26 of the Regional Law) 10 August 2017, No. 22).
The functions in support of the institutional activity of Region Lombardia (concerning training, studies and research, technical-scientific support, statistics and management of observers) are now completed with the functions supporting integrated policies on education, training and employment.
This outlines the mission of an organization supporting the implementation and evaluation of the policies for the Region as a whole, which this year started rethinking, consolidating and guiding previous experiences into a broad and complex vision, more responsive to the changed (and changing) public scenario.
