Institute for European Environmental Policy, London (IEEP)



IEEP is an independent, not for profit institute dedicated to advancing an environmentally sustainable Europe through policy analysis, development and dissemination. Our aim is to disseminate knowledge about Europe and the environment and to analyse and present policy options. We undertake research and consultancy on the development, implementation and evaluation of environmental and environment-related policies in Europe.


Our focus on European policy making is shared by few and we have a reputation based on possessing a history of knowledge and involvement acquired over thirty years. We cover nine research areas spanning the key European and related national policy agendas: 
  • Agriculture and land management
  • Biodiversity 
  • Climate change and energy
  • Environmental economics
  • Global issues and external action
  • Governance
  • Industrial pollution
  • Resource use, waste and chemicals
  • Water, marine and fisheries


IEEP is principally involved in the stakeholder engagement and science-policy dialogue work package (WP6). Our key task will explore the role of users of natural resources in data collection, mobilisation and use. We will look at specific cases (such as pollinators/agriculture; water companies; hunters and anglers) and identify opportunities for improving the integration and use of data.
