Law and policy and their developments place a framework within which RD&I projects are undertaken. They impact on for example which RD&I projects are chosen for public funding and can place extra hurdles to overcome before achieving market launch and market take-up of new products.

Law and policy tasks which we undertake in RD&I projects include to:

  • Research and analyse of EU and UK (England and Wales) law
  • Research and analyse of EU and UK (England and Wales) quality standards and rules
  • Analyse EU, UK and German policies and discussions about their development
  • Identify and analyse stakeholders
  • Identify specific policy needs
  • Prepare briefings for policy makers such as flash reports or case studies
  • Prepare policy recommendations
  • Inform and engage policy makers (also as part of the service RD&I Communication)
