SEO regularly conducts economic research for local governments, such as municipalities and provinces

Our research for municipalities covers various areas, including the social domain, energy transition, local economy, or regional labour markets. We have extensive knowledge of the social domain and can assist municipalities in measuring policy effects or assessing its costs and benefits. In the context of the energy transition, for instance, we outline how municipalities can become energy-neutral and the implications for the local economy and labour market. For the Amsterdam Metropolitan Region, we regularly analyse its economic and labour market developments, as well as the challenges awaiting this region. Our research for municipalities and provinces is even broader and covers most other areas of expertise described on this website.
