Economy & Business policy

published: 17-10-2018

Europe is becoming more and more entrepreneurial. To stimulate economic growth and increase competiveness it is important that entrepreneurs become more ambitious and that they value the results of more growth and more profit.


The question is how? How can we further promote entrepreneurship and increase the number of ambitious entrepreneurs? How can we arrange that enterprises grow and continue growing? How do we keep ambitious, innovative and growing enterprises in Europe and make them competitive with the rest of the world?

Panteia can help to answer these questions on the basis of research and advise on policies to be developed at regional, national and international levels. Based on our quantitative and qualitative knowledge and experience a broad variety of research and consultancy tools can be applied including, impact assessments, evaluations and fitness checks (Refit).

Since 1930, EIM (as of 1 January 2011 Panteia) has carried out policy-oriented research focusing on enterprises and the business environment. Panteia carries out economic policy research for governments, policy institutions and trade associations with special emphasis on enterprise issues.
