The output will allow SMEs to browse and analyze rules of origin in trade agreements and to better understand them. For policymakers, the output will serve as a data-driven solution to design better trade agreements. For researchers, it will represent the main database on rules of origin globally.

    The project will run through 2017 and the outputs, within this project, will be a fully-developed numeric database with a pilot set of trade agreements and a fully-functional web application.
