How are study topics selected?

EMN produces every year two to three studies on specific topics. Study topics are selected based on proposals made by an EMN NCP(s) and/or the European Commission and are based on their relevance to Member States and the Commission to policy development. Particular attention is paid to the relevance of such studies to their target audience, i.e. policymakers at both EU and Member State level. It is the role of the Steering Board to formally approve the selection of topics within the context of an annual EMN Work Programme.

How does the EMN produce its studies?

Initially, a common study specification is developed, in order to facilitate better comparability, and then each EMN NCP produces a National Report, according to the common specifications and often involving contributions from members of their national network. Subsequently a comparative Synthesis Report and Inform are produced, bringing together the main findings from the National Reports and placing them within an EU perspective (e.g. by relating to recent policy initiatives).
