2021 EU Conference on modelling for policy support: collaborating across disciplines to tackle key policy challenges


Tackling policy challenges requires making political choices, which must be transparently informed by evidence.

Models are extensively used to analyse the environmental, economic, and social impacts of policies. The European Commission makes use of models throughout the policy cycle and is committed to sound and transparent use of evidence in the framework of the Better Regulation policy and Open science principles.

The Conference brings together researchers and policymakers from European and international institutions, Member States, universities, research institutes and consultancies to identify common challenges and solutions when using models to support policymaking across all policy domains.


To minimize risks due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Conference will be a fully online event, with a mix of plenary and parallel sessions, interactive trainings and workshops taking place in the course of a full week.
