Every year, the work of our experts results in more than 200 reports, studies, and analyses. Most of them are published and available on our website.
Sometimes our work resonates and has a direct impact on the public agenda. At other times, it contributes more subtly to the making of superior decisions within a company, organisation, or courtroom.
In the period 2007-2017, Google’s data centre investments have supported the economic activity in Europe with EUR 490 million in gross domestic product (GDP)per year on average; in other words, EUR 5.4 billion in total for the whole period. At the same time, the data centre investments have supported 6,600 jobs per year on average (full-time equivalents).
That is the key conclusions in our study on Google’s investments in digital infrastructure.
In the study, we have measured the extent to which Google’s investments turn into benefit for European societies and economies. Since 2007, Google has spent EUR 3.2 billion on constructing and operating hyper-scale data centres in four European regions: St. Ghislain-Mons in Belgium, Hamina-Kotka in Finland, Dublin in Ireland and Eemshaven-Groningen in the Netherlands. Over the same period, an additional EUR 1.1 billion has been spent on European fibre networks, connecting the data centres to the internet and thus making them accessible for the multiple consumer and business applications offered.
Today, Dr Bruno Basalisco presents the results at a launch event in Brussels, joining speakers such as EU Commissioner for Regional Policy Corina Cre?u and Matt Brittin, President Google Europe.

That is one of the key conclusions in our study on biofuels in aviation in Sweden.
In the study, we analyse the possibility of a more environmentally friendly air transport sector in Sweden, which does not come at the cost of high connectivity becoming more expensive.

Ireland is uniquely exposed to Brexit due to a very high trade intensity with the UK and the use of the UK landbridge to access continental markets.
