EU Policy Deep-dive sessions

EU Policy Certified Community

Join us in 2021 for our deep-dive sessions on EU Policy!

The EU Policy team has planned four deep-dive sessions exclusively for EU policy certified practitioners to deepen their knowledge of EU policy. These sessions will allow you to dive and get practical insights into four of our flagship projects.

In these four deep-dive sessions, you will have the chance to discover timely EU policy topics while deepening your knowledge of EU policy methodologies (evaluations, impact assessment, feasibility studies, economic modelling), as well as asking questions to EU policy practitioners on their practical experience and interact with your fellow alumni. 

The four deep-dive sessions are briefly described below. Two different time slots are foreseen for each session. Register below to the sessions of your choice and we look forward seeing you!

Evaluating the EU cybersecurity past and future activities: A deep-dive into ENISA’s ex-ante evaluation

Tuesday, 23 March 2021 | 13:30 – 14:30 CET session

Tuesday, 30 March 2021 | 18:00 – 19:00 CET

In 2019, the EU Agency for cybersecurity (ENISA)’s mandate was broaden and made permanent, which implied important changes for the Agency and motivated it to conduct internal evaluations. Following the Agency’s request, Deloitte ran an ex-post and an ex-ante evaluation in parallel. This session will focus on the ex-ante evaluation, which looked into the major cybersecurity trends of the future, with the aim to give ENISA insights on what would be its biggest challenges in the next two years, feeding into its next work programmes.

During this presentation, the study team will guide you through the EU cybersecurity ecosystem and provide you with an overview of ENISA, its role, missions and activities. It will dive into the ex-ante evaluation and share best practices related to this exercise. Not only will you gain important insights on the workings of ENISA, but you will also be provided with practical and tangible examples of methods and tools to carry-out evaluations, especially in a context where ex-post and ex-ante evaluations are performed back-to-back.

Reimagining the Future of Data in the EU

Tuesday, 1 June 2021 | 12:00 – 13:00 CET 

Tuesday, 9 June 2021 | 16:00 – 17:00 CET 

With the launch of its new European Data Strategy, the EU is aiming to position itself as the world’s most attractive, secure and dynamic data-agile economy. This session will present the findings from our Data Use study with DG CNECT, which investigated measures that could facilitate data sharing in the EU with an emphasis on: business-to-government sharing, the public interest, citizen empowerment, business-to-business sharing, amongst many other topics. This presentation will bring a fascinating impact assessment to life with insights into tools such as policy trees, macro-economic impact analysis, and the assessment of policy options, all with a digital flair.

Facilitating the cross-border switching of payment accounts for consumers in the EU – an example of a feasibility analysis

Wednesday, 29 September  2021 | 12:00 – 13:00 CET

Wednesday, 6 October 2021 2021 | 17:00 – 18:00 CET 

Have you ever tried to open a bank account in another EU country or to switch accounts from one bank to another in your own country? Did you find this process complicated? The EU is looking at different ways to make this process smoother for consumers. 

The Payment Accounts Directive lays down rules to ensure healthy competition in this area and one of its key components is to facilitate the switching of payment accounts for consumers, domestically and cross-border. This session will dive into a feasibility study conducted to support DG JUST and DG FISMA in assessing different options to facilitate cross-border switching. EU practitioners will guide you through the key methodologies used in this study (i.e. identification and definition of options via case studies, assessment of options’ effectiveness and efficiency and comparison with a multicriteria analysis). They will present the outcomes of the study, as well as the key challenges and lessons learned from their experience.

Towards safe and sustainable traffic in outer space

Tuesday, 23 November 2021 | 12:00 – 13:00 CET

Wednesday, 2 December 2021 | 17:00 – 18:00 CET

The number of space objects, or satellites, revolving in outer space is growing exponentially, driven by new technologies and democratisation of access to space by economic operators. Simply put, this leads to traffic jams, which further increase the odds for collisions. Besides this, there is currently no internationally agreed (regulatory)  framework to manage space traffic throughout the satellites life-cycle, i.e. no common rules for dealing with satellite launches, operations and decommissioning, which poses a threat on the safety and sustainability of (future) space activities.

This session will showcase the development of a European Point of View on Space Traffic Management (STM), from the evaluation of existing frameworks to the development of adequate policy measures and their impact assessment. The study involves scenario building for space activities up to 2050 and economic analysis of policy intervention options for an internationally sensitive and salient topic. Ready to embark?
