Case Studies - Vital Economics analysis, advice and advocacy 

Case Study 1  What does Brexit mean for UK manufacturers 

Vitale Economics in Collaboration with University of Sussex helped a coalition of UK Trade Associations consider the impact Brexit could have on their members. With expert knowledge of trade rules and regulatory requirements, surveys and interviews, trade data analysis and mapping supply chains the team built up a body of evidence and generated clear findings. These helped the Trade Associations advise their members and lobby government to mitigate the damage some forms of Brexit could cause. 

Case Study 2 Option appraisal with limited data 

Vital Economics in collaboration with IMC International and University of Sussex advised the UK Foreign Office on the desirability of allocating Trade Facilitation support to developing countries and how to allocate it. The key challenges were to: help the client identify and consider multiple objectives and criteria for success, assess whether the intervention might work and where resources could be most effective. Data availability was a huge constraint. The team used a very wide range of sources of technical information, interviews and modelling to build an evidence base. This was then shared and discussed to help the client with their decision making. 

Case Study 3  Energy Innovation Learning from others 

Low Carbon energy innovation in the UK has been delivered by a range of bodies over the last decade. Vital Economics helped The Energy Systems Catapult consider the approaches taken by its predecessors and innovation bodies in other sectors, to build on their successes and consider how best it can meet the needs of its primary stakeholders, the UK government and UK innovators. The findings of the analysis helped the Energy Systems Catapult formulate its approach to communicating and prioritising its work. 

Case Study 4 Impact Assessment; legal changes in a global market 

Vital Economics in collaboration with Warwick Economics and Brian Titley Consulting helped UNIDROIT, the international body responsible for private law to assess the impact of changes to finance contracts for large capital equipment such as mining, construction and agricultural equipment. Working with lawyers, financiers and manufacturers the analysis helped UNIDROIT gain a clearer picture of what planned reforms might be able to achieve. The results were discussed with industry experts, legal experts and government representatives to help UNIDROIT and its stakeholders to maximise the benefits and avoid potential pitfalls in their reform process.
