Growth in action-April 2001-The Competitive and Sustainable Growth Programme magazine

Funded under: FP5-GROWTH


Time and again, Europe has shown its ability to lead in high-technology ventures when it works in a coordinated manner. From aerospace to steel production to the mind boggling field of nanotechnology, the success of cooperative research is a good illustration of what we are now trying to create for Europe-a European Research Area. The objective is for the Union, the Member States, academic and research institutions and private industry to multiply the weight of their individual capacities.

It is in this spirit that the Aeronautic Days 2001 conference was organized in Hamburg. This edition of Growth in Action devotes a large section to that event, illustrating how Europe has succeeded in establishing itself as a worthy competitor to the United States in the high-tech, knowledge-based fields of aerospace and aeronautics. Successes like Airbus and Ariane show clearly what we Europeans can accomplish when we link up, pool our resources and share our knowledge. .
