JOIN THE CONVERSATION

We support the public sector in designing, analysing and evaluating policies and programmes so as to optimise spending and increase accountability and effectiveness.

We also advise and assist project promoters, both public and private, and decision-makers to design and appraise investment projects, especially infrastructural ones, from both a financial and a socio-economic standpoint.

Our approach to evaluation and policy analysis is aimed at formulating action-based and practical recommendations.

We work across many sectors and we specialise in some key policy areas including regional development and EU Cohesion policy, SMEs competitiveness, research and innovation, and digital transformation.

Our services include:

  • Ex-ante, mid-term and ex-post evaluation of policies and programmes;
  • Feasibility studies and cost-benefit analysis of investment projects;
  • Impact assessment of legislative or policy initiatives;
  • Analysis of regional development strategies;
  • Analysis of the rationale, principles and delivery systems of EU policies;
  • Design of monitoring and evaluation systems;
  • Business planning and financial sustainability of investment projects;
  • Socio-economic impact assessment studies;
  • Training on methodologies and tools for programme and project evaluation.
