CIA4OPM (Common Impact Assessment for Optimising the Policy mix) is an OMC-Net funded project establishing a network of policy actors from 15 European organisations. 

The main goal is to exchange information and learn from each other on national activities with respect to the assessment of (socio-) economic impacts of public funding (policies and instruments) of Research, Technological Development and Innovation (RTDI) in the areas of:

(i)    enhancement of private R&D investment,
(ii)    improved cooperation between public research institutes and private enterprises, and
(iii)    improved management of research institutions and universities.

The project will develop better harmonised (amongst Member States/regions) methodologies (toolbox/manual) for the alignment/coordination of impact assessment of public RTDI funding, and will assess the usefulness of impact assessment tools in the development of an appropriate policy mix.
