The Competence Centre on Modelling of the Joint Research Centre of the European Commission invites abstract submissions for the EU Conference on Modelling for Policy Support to be held November 26-27, 2019, in Brussels, Belgium.

Its aim is to identify common challenges and solutions in the use of models to support policy making.
Contributions are expected to cover model development and model use for policy development, assessment and implementation in the EU and in the Member States.
The papers should address scientific and practical aspects of model development and use for policy support. They should aim at identifying common issues, challenges and the way forward by sharing best practices to contribute to the quality of modelling for policy support in the EU.
