We are doing science for policy
The Joint Research Centre (JRC) is the European Commission's science and knowledge service which employs scientists to carry out research in order to provide independent scientific advice and support to EU policy.
The Territorial Data Analysis and Modelling (TEDAM) team provides analytical support to EU policy making with a focus on the territorial dimension (NUTS 2 regions). The TEDAM activities include quantitative economic analyses, monitoring, and policy impact assessments.
The work of the team is organised along two pillars.
The RHOMOLO pillar (Regional Holistic Model) focuses on modelling for policy impact assessment, mainly with the dynamic spatial computable general equilibrium (CGE) model RHOMOLO, and with Input-Output techniques.
The REMO pillar (Regional Economic Monitoring) focuses on the mapping, monitoring and analysis of key regional statistical data and indicators of relevance for EU policies, as well as micro-level data.
The policy support activity of the TEDAM team is summed up here.
A list of recent scientific publications such as working papers and journal articles can be found here. Notice that, since 2018, the analyses carried out by the TEDAM team are published in the JRC Working Papers series on Territorial Modelling.
