The COSA initiative is deeply committed to ensuring the methods necessary in order to have scientific credibility for its findings, particularly the attribution of observed differences to the interventions being monitored.

COSA’s extensive networks are clearly one of its primary strengths. In the realm of scientific or technical advice, COSA benefits from the input of a number of scientists from around the world. Among these is an esteemed group that includes:

Michael Hiscox Harvard University Professor of Economics
