CeMI's Policy Expertise and Policy Impact on the National and International Level

Centre for Monitoring and Research (CeMI) implemented the project “Raising CeMI’s Policy Expertise and Policy Impact on the National and International Level“.

The overall objective of this project was for CeMI to take a step further and become a more competitive organization by introducing new methods, technologies and topics and advancing the quality of its products and the influence of its results. The specific goals of this project were upgrading the research and advocacy capacities and expanding the area of public policy, improving the existing and making new channels for communication and expansion, and ensuring the sustainability of conducted researches.

These goals were achieved by expanding the volume of public policy research and influence from the national to the international level, increasing the influence of evidence-based advocacy, and also by introducing new research approaches and expanding the list of public policy research topics. Connecting CeMI with decision makes in the European Union institutions and key European countries through regular and ad hoc work visits to European institutions and EU member states as well as sustainable channels of communication with public institutions of EU member states and European think tank organizations were achieved, in order to increase the influence of evidence-based advocacy. Besides that, improving the existing and creating new channels of communication and expansion included higher visibility of data, by upgrading our online presence and maintaining the existing products database. In the end, the sustainability of our research was insured by the digitalization of the archive and creating virtual business services for researches.

The project was financed by Open Society Institute – Think Tank Fund.
