Analysis of monetary distribution effects of Horizon 2020 published
Two papers, published by Peter Fisch (former EC staff member) analyse the Horizon 2020 monetary redistribution between Member States. The first analysis provides a mainly descriptive overview of the key findings, new reflections with a closer look at the situation of the six largest Member States, and a direct comparison between the FP7 and Horizon 2020 analyses.
A second paper provides a new approach to use standard economic tools such as Lorenz curves and the Gini coefficients for a deeper analysis of the distributional effects of FP7 and Horizon 2020. After some technical explanations and a look at the data used, the first findings from this approach are presented. In conclusion, four statements are formulated to illustrate the analytical potential of this approach.
