Event Description

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. 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.

How you will learn
The seminar includes a combination of presentations, guest lectures, case studies and, most importantly, group exercises. You will also benefit from experience exchanges with your fellow participants.

What you will gain
You will gain a practical understanding of this increasingly important policy development tool. You will therefore be better equipped to participate directly in such processes, and you will be able to provide input into the exercises carried out by the EU institutions as part of the elaboration of EU legislation.

Who will benefit
Officials from ministries and agencies who are responsible for following policy dossiers at the EU level.
