RAND Europe Research

Through objective analysis and research RAND Europe strives to provide effective solutions and informed choices to policy and decision-makers. Our international expertise complements the multidisciplinary nature of our research teams.

By establishing new angles of enquiry and, in some cases, new methodologies for research, RAND Europe brings fresh approaches and adds valuable contributions to traditional as well as new RAND research areas. Along with its work for Brussels-based organisations such as the European Commission, specific areas of policy research for RAND Europe include:

  • Analysing the Value for Money of EU Programme Funding for Democracy and Rule of Law

    The Committee on Budgetary Control of the European Parliament commissioned RAND Europe to conduct an analytical study on the value for money of EU programmes to support democracy, the rule of law and respect for human rights and fundamental freedoms.

  • Accelerating the Internet of Things in the UK

    Research commissioned by IoTUK and BCS (The Chartered Institute for IT) is supporting a process for policy feedback that will inform the development and adoption of the Internet of Things in the UK. A bottom-up approach allowed RAND Europe researchers to bring together inputs from businesses and individual users of technology.
