The institute is committed to become a key player for evidence-based policy advice both on the national and the European level. Therefore, the institute is engaged in developing tools for quantitative and qualitative policy analysis serving for causal ex-post evaluation as well as for model based ex-ante impact assessment of policy interventions.”
