Quid Novi Foundation is an institute for Economic Policy Analysis, based in The Hague (The Netherlands). Our mission is to deliver high standard research, translated into policy language to contribute to the policy debate in a sound and meaningful way. Quid Novi brings new facts and figures that may act as a catalyst to economic reform in The Netherlands and across the European Union. Indeed. "there's no good idea that can't be improved on" (Michael Eisner - former CEO of Disney). Therefore, we strive to produce original and new research papers that add valuable new arguments to existing debates, both in academia and in the policy world. As it is this kind of "Translational Science" that will bring brilliance and common sense together.
Quid Novi works on a project basis. For more information about our institute, our people and our projects, please refer to the "Contact" page.

Quid Novi is partner of New Direction, the Foundation for European Reform.
