Policy Research Alerts

EU FP7 logoFlash-it logo1

A Flash-IT publication series

FLASH-IT’s Policy Research Alerts highlight newsworthy developments in EU-funded research projects dealing with Socio-economic Sciences and Humanities (SSH). Aimed at policymakers and researchers alike, the Alerts focus on SSH research findings that are relevant to Europe's policy priorities, particularly those enshrined in the Europe 2020 strategy. Similar in format to press releases, the one-page Alerts are issued every few weeks. Electronic subscriptions are available free of charge from the Flash-IT project website.
