Policy briefs and summaries are small reports tailored to the needs of policymakers, as to inform them about available evidence on specific questions and issues. The MWoE Policy Briefs focus specifically on aspects related to European Integration and the European Union, and seek to promote dialogue with policymakers, stakeholders and citizens from Europe and beyond.
The Policy Briefs Collection is produced and funded by the Maastricht, Working on Europe (MWoE) programme as part of the MWoE strategic research agenda. The policy briefs have a clear link to at least one of the four research themes defined in the research agenda.
I would like to apply. How does it work?
Seed funding is available on a rolling basis until the available budget is spent on a first-come, first-served basis (given sufficient quality). Researchers who wish to publish their research in the form of policy briefs for a clearly defined public and/or societal partner can apply for funding via the MWoE research calls.
