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:

  • Scoping the Impact of EU Membership on UK Health Research

    11 Aug 2015

    To help frame the debate on future EU membership in the context of UK health research, RAND Europe assessed the benefits and burdens of membership. This research, for the Department of Health, not only focuses on funding, but also looks at other aspects such as research environment, network effects, and knowledge spillovers. The project included a series of scenario-based workshops to explore future impact of EU funding.

  • Developing a Research Impact and Performance Management System for Oman

    11 Aug 2015

    Researchers designed a system through which The Research Council of Oman can measure the performance and impact of its funded research today and in the future. The team also collected data to set a baseline for a subset of the performance and impact indicators developed for the system.

  • Learning from Medical Breakthroughs to Improve Treatment for Dementia
