About RAND Europe
RAND Europe is a community interest company, and was established in 1992 as an independently chartered European unit of the U.S. policy research institution, the RAND Corporation. RAND Europe has offices in Brussels and Cambridge, and employs approximately 80 researchers: just over half of our research staff have doctorates with the balance holding other post-graduate degrees. Our work lies on the continuum between that of universities and consultancies, combining the academic rigour of universities and the professional, task orientated approach of consultancies.
