Research for the EU and Other Brussels-Based Organisations

EU flags

The turbulent times that Europe is currently facing pose complex problems to policy-makers and stakeholders alike. At the same time, the trend towards austerity in all areas of public spending has brought with it a pressing need for smart governments and evidence-based policy decisions.

RAND Europe's distinctive set of research skills, multidisciplinary approach and more than 20 years of expertise in international policy analysis allows it to make efficient use of existing data and policy tools to optimise public policy planning. Our range of studies for EU institutions and other Brussels-based international organisations and foundations have included impact assessments, evaluations of institutions and policy initiatives, benchmarking exercises and foresight studies.

Our office in Brussels is specialised in pan-European research and is dedicated to offering an evidence base for EU decision-making. This page highlights the work we have done and are currently conducting for our clients.
