Research Session for the Regulatory Scrutiny Board of the Commission: A new format for engagement and co-production of knowledge
Brussels, 2 May 2017. The Centre for European Governance (CEG) organised the first-ever research session with the European Commission’s Regulatory Scrutiny Board (RSB) and officers of the Secretariat General of the Commission working on impact assessment.
The RSB is the body that exercises regulatory oversight on the impact assessments supporting the proposals of the Commission and on the quality of legislative evaluation. At the event Professors Claire Dunlop and Claudio Radaelli brought together researchers from six European universities to present their most important inter-disciplinary findings and discuss challenging topics in the field of regulatory quality and EU law-making. All this in usable, concise and ‘distilled’ format. The RSB session was promoted by the research project Protego, funded by the European Research Council for the period 2016-2020.
Anne Bucher, Chair of the Regulatory Scrutiny Board said: “The Juncker Commission has set an ambitious Better Regulation agenda. The Regulatory Scrutiny Board seeks to ensure that policy makers can benefit from strong evidence coming from impact assessments and retrospective evaluations. I welcome today's meeting with some of Europe's top researchers in the field as it has shown that we have a lot in common to deepen our understanding of evaluation methodologies and to explore new and relevant issues”.
For Claire and Claudio, the value of such exchanges goes beyond raising awareness about academic research “it generates usable knowledge and creates the preconditions for co-production of knowledge. This is what a regulatory conversation looks like, we hope to carry on with other research sessions in the near future”.
