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:
