Policy puzzles are topics for which economists have a clear policy prescription but where actual policies do not follow it.

In this workshop participants explored the reasons for this, whether economic prescriptions were wrong or there were peculiarities in the political decision mechanism to look at.

Wouter van der Wielen, from the JRC Fiscal Policy Analysis team, presented the set-up of the ongoing project "The impact of unemployment evolutions and uncertainty in fiscal forecasting".

Over the past two decades we have been witnessing in the European context a growing concern about how societal actors might perceive research and innovation and the degree to which they support both. This has come hand in hand with a rising call for researchers themselves to become more responsive (and thus responsible) towards society and engage in a more direct manner with citizens, their concerns, values and knowledges – i.e. we could describe this as a call for researchers to develop a stronger sense of “academic citizenship.”
