ABOUT THE LAB
The EU Policy Lab is a space designed to foster creativity and engagement, and to develop interactions, processes and tools able to bring innovation into European policy-making. Our work is articulated around four complementary dimensions:
and Design for Policy.
As in other policy labs, our emphasis is on testing, experimenting and co-designing, by using tailored made frameworks with a strong visuals focus. We like to think about the Lab as both a physical and conceptual space to open up the conversation and facilitate collaboration between policy-making and stakeholders. Here, we explore, we connect and we find solutions for better policies.
Foresight explores long-term futures and creates shared visions for policy-making.
Modelling supports a proper documentation, use, and reuse of models using baseline scenarios, uncertainty analysis and sensitivity analysis, and social multi-criteria evaluation.
Behavioural insights gather contributions from various disciplines of behavioural sciences such as behavioural economics, social and cognitive psychology, and anthropology. Our Lab uses insights from these different disciplines to support EU policy-making by identifying behavioural elements in policies and proposing behavioural levers to increase their effectiveness.
Design thinking deploys people- and solution-centred processes to help stakeholders to innovate.
