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:

  • Research on Work and Wellbeing

    RAND Europe has undertaken numerous studies that look at the interface between employment and health and wellbeing in the workplace. Some common themes emerge from these pieces of work.

  • Assessing Measures Against Organised Crime

    The EU has initiated a number of measures to encourage cooperation between Member States to address organised crime. This study examined - in each of the 28 Member States - how the EU Council Framework Decision on Organised Crime has been transposed. It identified national criminal law and investigative tools used in the fight against organised crime and how these tools were used in practice.

  • Health, Wellbeing and Productivity in the Workplace

    RAND Europe and the University of Cambridge collected a large-scale dataset based on a survey of UK employers and workers to understand the relation between a broad set of health and lifestyle risk factors and workplace productivity.

  • Cambridge Workers Surveyed about Quality of Life

    21 May 2015

    To better its understanding of what the typical employee of a Cambridge business feels about their current quality of life, RAND Europe conducted a survey targeted at the working population of Cambridge. Housing and traffic were the greatest concerns, while leisure, education and health were associated with local area satisfaction.

  • Comparing Higher Education Entrance Qualifications and Exams in Europe

    11 May 2015

    The European Union considers higher education to have an obligation to help improve the acquisition of skills necessary for economic growth. An analysis of admission systems to higher education across ten countries, including EU members and international comparators, recommends ways university admissions systems can tackle the increasing demand for university education in an era of declining resources available per student.
