Public institutions often are in need of professional assistance in policy impact assessment or in collecting data about the opinions, perceptions and behavior of citizens in different areas. RESIS can provide assistance for public institutions in different ways:
- Policy impact assessment
RESIS works with a network of experts who can develop an assessment of the potential impact of new regulations for the needs of public institutions, in order to establish whether the planned results would be achieved with such regulations. The Regulatory Impact Assessment often cannot be performed without previously making a detailed study and without consulting stakeholders.
- Researching opinions and perceptions
For the needs of public institutions, the RESIS team can independently plan and conduct a full research of the opinions and perceptions of citizens, public service users, staff members and other target audiences.
- Trainings for independent data collection
RESIS organizes individual and group trainings for public institution employees who are in need of knowledge and skills for data collection and analysis in various policy areas. The content and duration of the trainings is decided in accordance with the needs of the public institution.
Some of the topics that can be included in the trainings are the following:
- Introduction of Policy Research
- Desk Research Plan
- Quantitative and Qualitative Data
- Document Analysis
- Writing Research Reports and Policy Documents
