This paper presents a first result of an IRCrES research project on the effects of smart working in public research organizations. The study aims at understanding the value of autonomous organization of individual work relatively to the production of new scientific knowledge in public research institutions (OECD, 2011), with a focus on the forms of smart working implemented in public research institutions also with reference to the social containment measures deriving from the pandemic due to COVID-19.

The organizations examined in this first phase are the National Institute of Astrophysics (INAF), the National Institute of Nuclear Physics (INFN) and the National Institute of Geophysics and Volcanology (INGV), which have introduced regulations of smart working before the pandemic emergency. In addition to these, the National Research Council (CNR) which had not yet activated smart working at the time of the emergency due to COVID-19 pandemic, and had to face problems connected to its regulation. For each of these organizations, authors analyze the implementation of smart working through rules and regulations.


Keywords: smart working, public research organizations, COVID-19, pandemic, effects.
