Improving the capacity and usability of EUROMOD (I-CUE) (1 May 2005 - 1 May 2008)
TÁRKI is the Hungarian participant in the EU-funded I-CUE project (2005-8). The project is co-ordinated by ISER (Institute for Social and Economic Research, UK) and the European Centre, Vienna, and aims to start the process of expanding EUROMOD to cover the 10 new Member States and to make EUROMOD easier to use. (EUROMOD is a project to develop the European tax and benefit model. See the EUROMOD website - external link.) Each country produced a feasibility study, which included a description of the tax-benefit system, as well as data availability and access issues. After the study was completed, it was discussed at a workshop in Vienna (April 2006) and various countries were picked: 'After a long deliberation, the Project Team (including the EUROMOD "core team" in Essex and the European Centre team) agreed to select Estonia, Hungary, Poland, and Slovenia as the four countries that we would aim to integrate into EUROMOD as part of I-CUE.' The second phase of the project starts in autumn 2006.
