Scientific support

Scientists from every participating country are also involved in EURIEC. The EURIEC receives procedural and substantive support from the Catholic University of Leuven, the Hochschule für Polizei und öffentliche Verwaltung in North Rhine-Westphalia (HSPV NRW) and Maastricht University.

Substantive case support/verification

The HSPV NRW and the Catholic University of Leuven offer substantive and legal support for the EURIEC project. They will assist EURIEC with the verification of the findings in specific cases.

Process assessment

Maastricht University is conducting action research. The basic principle of this type of research is to optimise the policy process and to resolve the teething problems associated with the implementation of a new policy. The professors of Maastricht University will regularly attend various consultations of the EURIEC. They will provide the EURIEC with regular feedback about how to improve the implementation process.
