Research and Evaluation

Olsberg•SPI has undertaken a large number of research and evaluation projects across the public and private sectors. These range from major pan-regional mapping and economic impact studies to evaluations of publicly-funded investment schemes on a national level, to acquisitions and divestment advice for owners or managers of small and medium private enterprises.

The firm has wide experience in economic impact studies in the creative industries, as well as conducting detailed, insightful research using a range of methods including consultations with our global network of high-level contacts, developed and maintained over decades.

Recent examples of SPI’s work in this area include an interim assessment of the Yorkshire Content Fund in the UK and a major evaluation of the Council of Europe’s Eurimages Fund. We are also currently undertaking an economic impact assessment of Europe’s fiscal incentives landscape for the European Audiovisual Observatory.
