Welcome to the BASIC Project Website
The BASIC project investigated how to provide affordable and reliable basic services (public services, services of general interest) for electricity, telecommunication, public transport and postal services in Europe. At the moment the institutional and regulatory frameworks under which those services are provided in the various European countries show a large variety of different possible models. The research undertaken in BASIC aimed to explain why certain models seem to work better than others and under which circumstances.
Research for the BASIC Project was completed at the end of 2005 and results are now available for download from this website.
