European Union Research in Economics - Socio-economic Sciences and Humanitiesl: Growth, Employment and Competitiveness in a Knowledge Society, Project Examples

Funded under: FP7-SSH

Abstract

This brochure describes EU projects mostly coming from the activity entitled "Growth, employment and competitiveness in a knowledge society" of the Socio-economic Sciences and Humanities Programme. The focus of this publication is on the European knowledge society (Lisbon Agenda) but it covers also issues related to policy evaluation and economic governance. The projects included in this brochure aim at answering the following questions: How to succeed in the age of globalisation? What are the impacts of research and innovation on growth and employment? How does internationalisation affect the localisation of knowledge-intensive activities of firms? What is the overall importance of service industries in European growth? How can the intangible assets be measured? What is the optimal public spending distribution? How is "entrepreneurship" evolving in Europe?
