The European Commission Competence Centre on Modelling (CC-MOD) is organising the 2nd biennial EU Conference on modelling for policy support. The event will take place during the week of 22 – 26 November 2021.
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.
In 2019 the first edition of the Conference highlighted the need and added value for model developers and users to share knowledge and best practices. The programme of the 2021 Conference has been further enriched to provide additional opportunities of exchange between modellers and policymakers.
