Description: This research line mainly focusses on the evidence-based evaluation of policy proposals and programs to support policy makers and business decisions. For this research, standard neoclassical evaluations and instruments (cost-benefit analysis, willingness-to-pay, etc.) and insights are applied and extended. The main focus lies on (regulatory) impact assessments and administrative simplification related topics. 

The research group has a framework contract (2017-2021) with the Belgian federal government to conduct applied evidence-based policy research for all government agencies.

Research topics: administrative simplification, e-government, regulatory quality, electronic health records
