In almost all European countries, a policy impact analysis is required for proposed legislation in all policy areas. This network supports the impact assessment in particular of sustainability aspects by collecting data and developing modeling methods and other analytical methods. The research project is intended to result in an interface between science and academia and politics: researchers will be able to utilize the results for regulatory impact assessment, while government representatives can gather knowledge to use for the preparation of laws. Through their many years of experience in analyzing policy impact assessment, the researchers of Freie Universität are well-equipped to contribute to the successful utilization of new procedures in policy impact assessment.
