Agenda Setting & Policy Analysis

What you need.

A capable partner for European policy and strategy to support you in the implementation of your projects with multidisciplinary expertise, experience in political Europe, and a strong network.

What we offer.

We have a broad area of expertise. Innovation and growth, trends and future markets, education and the labour market, climate adaptation and sustainability, disparities and cohesion, or (cross-)sectoral competences in the fields of energy, mobility, circular economy, creative economy, or health – we answer your questions comprehensively and underpinned by facts.

We draw from a large methodology toolbox. New methodological tools such as our big data analytics expertise, are constantly being developed. On this basis, we can provide you with comprehensive support – with econometric analyses, Europe-wide online surveys, and qualitative assessment tools, as well as the Prognos models and the Prognos web intelligence tool. Prognos is a Eurostat recognised research institution and has access to microdata from all EU countries.


Agenda Setting & Policy Analysis: A selection of our services

Agenda setting

Agenda setting and formulation are the first two phases of the policy cycle. We will help you further specify your approach and justify exactly why the state should intervene in this regard.

Policy analytics

With policy analytics, we support you in developing empirically founded and practice-oriented insights for your policy field – often in the form of comprehensive studies or compact dossiers.

Thematic conception and systematisation for agenda setting

With our analytical approach and our system expertise, we support you in identifying the right connections and preparing your topics for the agenda setting stage.

Quantitative analyses and evaluations

We believe in the need for robust quantification, underpinned by Prognos’ models, based on AI, or supported by secondary statistical data. We support you not only in explaining your topics convincingly in terms of concept, but also in justifying them based on facts.

Stakeholder participation and pan-European surveys

Comprehensive stakeholder involvement – through workshops, interviews, or pan-European surveys – plays a significant role in any agenda setting or policy analysis. Here, too, we are increasingly using AI and big data to gain new insights, for example, through internet and social media sentiment analyses.

Studies and dossiers

We systematically combine different findings in studies and dossiers and derive strategic conclusions. This will support you in your further work in the policy cycle.
