Policy monitoring

Since the early 2000s, we have designed and managed a series of policy monitoring platforms, notably for the European Commission, that enable decision-makers and stakeholders to become familiar with and compare policy developments across countries and regions.

We undertook pioneering work on benchmarking policy performance, governance and specific policy initiatives such as the Innovation TrendChart, ERAWATCH, the regional innovation monitor and the eco-innovation observatory.
