Mapping of Potential Research Areas for Economic Analysis

Imperial College Consultants, Ltd
Start date
End date
The research will conduct interviews with a sample of external FSA stakeholders (businesses, trade and consumer organisations, local authorities and other government departments). Interviews will aim to identify economic research that is carried out by stakeholders and areas that stakeholders would like the Agency to fund.

The results of the interviews will be combined with the knowledge gaps identified by the 'Review on the Economics of Food Safety and Food Standards' (project D03002) to give a set of recommendations for prioritising the Economics Research Programme.

More information
The Economics Research Programme is a new programme in the Agency's research portfolio. Therefore, it is important to identify those areas where economics can add most value to the activities of the Agency. This project will build on the knowledge gaps, which were identified by the literature review.
