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.

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.
