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 current version of RHOMOLO (V3) covers 267 NUTS2 regions of the EU Member States and the UK. It is well-suited for analysing policies related to human capital, transport infrastructures, and R&D and innovation.
RHOMOLO is being used extensively for policy impact assessments of the European Structural and Investment Funds such as the ERDF and the ESF, and it is used together with the European Investment Bank (EIB) for the evaluation of the macroeconomic impact of the EIB group (here's the first study on it published in July 2018). Starting from 2018, the analyses carried out by the Regional Economic Modelling team are published in the JRC Working Papers series on Territorial Modelling.
A web interface has been developed which allows users to execute a set of policy experiments using a simplified version of the model. For more information about the model and technical documentation, please consult the RHOMOLO homepage.
