What they do for Perceive:

The IAFE-NRI is a research institute specialized in agricultural economics and regional studies and important part of its current research concentrates on EU policies and their impact on socioeconomic growth. Within the PERCEIVE project IAFE-NRI will be involved in the analysis of EU policies and their impact. More precisely, the IAFE-NRI will coordinate a report on the policy recommendations on how to integrate Cohesion Policy with Urban and Rural policies. In completing this task, the IAFE-NRI will address how territorial cohesion objectives match the “real problems”. In order to increase the effectiveness of this approach, a comparative analysis between the case study regions will be conducted in order to identify the best practice in mixing the EU policy instruments for a better achievement of regional needs.
