Research voor Beleid, a business unit of Panteia, is the oldest private institute for policy research in the Netherlands. We have over thirty years of experience in providing clients in the public sector with the knowledge necessary to make well-founded decisions in every stage of the policy cycle. We conduct national, European-wide and international (comparative) studies for national, regional and local governments, a range of DGs within the European Commission, the European Parliament, non-profit organisations, implementing organisations, self-governing bodies, trade associations, audit authorities and others. Our key fields of expertise are: Employment, Social Protection and Social Inclusion, Education and Training, Regional (Economic) Development, Governance, and Public Health and Welfare. Our research is concise, time-efficient, and has a high practical value. In addition, the methodology that we use is of the highest technical quality, thereby generating sound results. The reports that we produce are clear and are delivered on time. We have an extensive infrastructure for data collection, data analysis and modelling, as well as for the management of international networks. The expertise provided by Panteia at large, as well as by its European network of like-minded partner organisations, constitutes a large reservoir of knowledge which we valuably make use of in our projects.
