Abstract: This new project funded by the European Commission will identify and quantify the impact of the EU Single Market on fostering productivity growth, specialisation and vertical integration via foreign direct investment in Ireland and other EU countries. The evidence will be used as high-level analytical input to underpin proposals and recommendations for strategy and future policies.
The ESRI works towards a national vision of ‘Informed policy for a better Ireland’. This means producing high-quality analysis to provide robust evidence for policymaking, with the goals of research excellence and policy impact.
The ESRI produces research that contributes to understanding economic and social change in the new international context and that informs public policymaking and civil society in Ireland.
