The present report on the Europeanization of economic research deals with research fields where grants awarded by Community programmes SPES (stimulation plan for economic science) HCM (human capital and mobility) and ACE (action for co-operation in economics) have supported co-operation and mobility at European level for research conducted during the first half of the 1990s. In addition to the detailed analyses set out in the report the authors identify two key trends: that Europe is strengthening its capabilities and intellectual creativity vis à vis the US, who have dominated this field of research; and, furthermore, that the orientation of research in Europe is shifting from national preoccupations towards areas with a distinct European dimension. Moreover, Community funded programmes mentioned above are cited as having played a significant role in this evolution.
