Policy research and advisory activities

The GGP has an active programme of advisory activities and applied research that is centred on issues that are relevant for developing countries. These activities comprise tailor-made training, both on the EUI premises and in other locations that are more appropriate for the client, and advisory work for international organisations and development agencies. These activities build directly on the research carried out by the Global Economics: Trade, Development and Investment research team.
