The competence centre on modelling of the Joint Research Centre of the European Commission is organising the EU conference on modelling for policy support.
The European Commission makes extensive use of models throughout the policy cycle. Models are used to assess the environmental, economic, and social impacts of policies.
The Commission’s competence centre on modelling (CC-MOD) promotes a responsible, coherent and transparent use of modelling to support the evidence base for policies in the EU, and pools the Commission's competencies and best practices in building and using models.
The conference will bring together researchers and policymakers involved in modelling activities from the Commission, European and international institutions and agencies, Member States, universities, research institutes, and consultancies.
Its aim is to identify common challenges and solutions in the use of models to support policymaking. Experiences, challenges and the way ahead will be discussed by sharing best practices to ensure high quality standards and adherence to the state-of-the-art.
