The European Commission makes extensive use of models throughout the policy cycle. Models are used to assess the environmental, economic, and social impacts of policies.

The Commission Competence Centre on Modelling (CC-MOD) promotes a responsible, coherent and transparent use of modelling to support the evidence base for policies in the EU, and pools the Commission's competencies and best practices in building and using models.

The Conference brought together researchers and policy makers involved in modelling activities from the Commission, European and international institutions and agencies, Member States, Universities, research institutes, and consultancies.

Its aim was to identify common challenges and solutions in the use of models to support policy making. Experiences, challenges and the way ahead were discussed by sharing best practices to ensure high quality standards and adherence to the state-of-the-art.
