Policy Design

Empirical impact assessment and policy-making guidelines on public organisations for social, political, environmental and economic sustainability!


Policymakers draft future worlds utilising policy-design methods, an essential tool for bringing political actors and the government closer to citizens’ concerns and needs.

Policy design involves the systematic development of efficient and effective policies, through the application of evidence-based knowledge gained from experience, practice and reason, aiming to develop and adopt action plans that are likely to succeed in desired goals, in particular, socioeconomic, political or environmental contexts.

ViLabs elaborates on policy design and provides policymakers with recommendations, and solutions to support the implementation of evidence-based measures. ViLabs enables a multi-disciplinary approach for policy design development in different fields and areas of interest, such as health, social innovation, work-life balance, food waste, environment gender and more.

Drawing from its involvement in various EU policy sectors, ViLabs provides extensive knowledge and practice on policy design methods through:

  • Comprehensive issue/needs identification and analysis of past and current policy frameworks.
  • Impact assessment using economic, technological, political and social parameters.
  • Creation of policy briefs, recommendations and best practices reports.
  • Development of action plans for policy making to be integrated at local, regional, national, and European levels.

ViLabs has carried out policy design within the following projects:


Also, ViLabs has been the lead contractor of the 30-year report on EUREKA technological trends and standout projects, in which ViLabs analysed the impact of EUREKA-funded projects on shaping innovation and influencing social life:
