The project covers key and long debated EU issues on indicators, competitiveness and the impact of public policy. Within this broader topic it deals with issues of how public policy for enterprises and economic activity (notably tax and support policies) can be chartered and benchmarked by means of a system of ad hoc indicators derived from:
(a) a multi source, integrated data base of cross-section and longitudinal microdata from enterprise administrative registers and surveys and
(b) microsimulation models that can serve to simulate and monitor how policy affects the competitive process and, by so doing, foster or hinder living standards, opportunities, the growth of knowledge and innovation, and the process of development and renewal of e- and non e-activities.
The analysis has a national and, a no longer avoidable but still under researched EU perspective. The latter is a key features that is highly innovative and of utmost value for Community policy.
