Luka Klimavičiūtė

Luka joined PPMI in 2018. She specialises in public sector innovation, employment policy and migration studies. In 2018, she helped implement the second wave of the COLLEEM Survey for JRC regarding conditions of workers who make a living through online platforms. In 2019, Luka joined a JRC project exploring the effects of digital government transformation, including the risks for public sector employees. The project explores how AI, machine learning, APIs, geo-spatial data, and robotisation are changing the government. Luka is currently leading a case study—which involves a randomised control trial, surveys, and interviews with top city officials—regarding an app through which citizens report issues to the municipality. Additionally, she is involved in the CEEYouth comparative study of young migrants from Poland and Lithuania in the context of Brexit and a DG CONNECT study on social outcome contracting. Before joining PPMI, Luka consulted for various organisations, including the World Bank and Oxford’s Migration Observatory.
