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 thematic research on fiscal policy consists in a series of studies which place analytical focus on topics related to fiscal policy simulations and modelling.
The thematic studies comprehend different aspects of taxation, and aim at shedding light into specific research questions related to EU Member States tax and benefit systems, deepening the understanding of relevant tax issues.
Moreover, the thematic studies are also intended to extend and improve the modelling tools currently being used by the Fiscal Policy Analysis team. This allows the provision of research support to a wider set of fiscal policy questions.
The Fiscal Policy Analysis team is currently carrying out studies on the following thematic research topics:
A series of working papers on the previous studies and also on other projects has been produced: JRC Working Papers on Taxation and Structural Reforms.
