This two-day course is an intensive practical introduction to impact assessment in EU decision-making. It will show you why impact assessment has become an increasingly important part of the policy-making and legislative processes in the EU.
How will it help you?
You will discuss the key analytical steps followed by the European Commission in preparing an impact assessment, and you will become familiar with the main quantitative and qualitative tools available. Finally, it gives you a forum for considering the opportunities for stakeholder and Member State input into the preparation of European Commission impact assessments, as well as the inter-institutional dimensions and challenges.
