If you have a research or consultancy background and an interest in how public policies can help make the Internet a safer place, and the wider issues of digital policy and internet regulation, we may have the new role you have been looking for. Strong demand for our services means we are expanding our digital policy team and are looking for enthusiastic researchers and analysts who are interested in how public policy can be used to tackle online harms, and working on the wider issues of internet regulation that policy-makers in the EU and elsewhere are trying to tackle.
Much of our work in this area is for EU institutions. The EU has set out an ambitious digital policy agenda for the years ahead; ICF is retained by the European Commission to provide expert research and advisory services on digital policy and in many other related areas of policy. We also work for many of the EU’s specialist agencies, and for government and other organisations in the UK. Examples of our recent and current assignments are: research on the digital principles that will guide EU digital rules and regulations, several studies on how to strengthen action against child sexual abuse material online, and impact assessments of proposed EU legislation on regulating online platforms.
When you join us, you will become a member of a diverse, multi-discipline, multi-national team that is united by a commitment to better public policy and the development of insights and solutions. Our economists, lawyers, social scientists, natural scientists, governance specialists, and data analysts conduct qualitative and quantitative analysis, provide strategic advice and evaluate what works. We have active programmes of work across a wide range of policy areas, from obesity to migration, climate change to health, gender equality to environment, and education to humanitarian aid.
