“Great workplaces (Institutul European din România – European Institute of Romania) invest in the qualifications of their employees especially when this can mean a new perspective for running the current and future activities. With this thought in mind, I got to enrol in the course on Regulatory Impact Assessments.
Given that it was the first training I took on this topic, I was very invested to get to know as much as possible and to be able to further disseminate the knowledge among my colleagues. Over the course of two days, I learnt about:
The need for impact assessments (IAs) and when to use them
The features of ‘better regulation’ and how to read an impact assessment
How does the process of regulatory impact assessment look like in the European Union and how to build policy options
Methods used in IAs (my favourite one being that of multi-criteria analysis, thanks to the wonderful explanation provided by Diana Danciu)
I look forward to use the knowledge and information grasped in our future activies.”

“The Ex post Evaluations in the context of Better Regulation course contained an informative, relevant and comprehensive framework of the regulatory policy cycle, with focus on ex post evaluation. The course gave me new theoretical insights as well as practical tools and tips which will be useful in my work. The expertise and enthusiasm of the lecturer, in combination with a pedagogic set-up including interactive elements made the three day course pass quickly. I can warmly recommend it to any civil servant with responsibility for regulatory matters at national or EU level.”
