UHASSELT is an independent, enterprising university that chooses for active education tailored to the student; top research in spearhead fields: and entrepreneurship and innovation through its role as an academic think tank and through a pronounced international orientation.

The Research Group Economics and Public Policy at UHASSELT studies Public Policy and its economic effects and lectures several economics courses in undergraduate and graduate study programs. Its research activities currently focus on two domains: (i) Law and Economics and (ii) Fiscal Management in the European Union. In the first domain the focus is on analysis of the impact and efficiency of regulation in the EU. Using tools of impact analysis and various other techniques, the impact and efficiency of public policy is analysed. In the second domain, the design and effects of fiscal policy and structural reforms in the EU is studied. Here modern empirical and theoretical approaches such as paneldata, SVAR and DSGE models have been applied that will also be extended in the context of WWWforEurope.
