European Network of Economic Policy Research Institutes (ENEPRI), Final report on scientific achievements

Project ID: HPSE-CT-1999-00004
Funded under: FP5-HUMAN POTENTIAL

Abstract

The European Network of Economic Policy Research Institutes (ENEPRI) was created under the 5th Framework Programme of the European Union in 1999/2000 at the initiative of the Centre for European Policy Studies (CEPS). ENEPRI brings together leading national institutes from a number of EU member states and accession countries.
The network organised 12 workshops and 2 conferences with the funds from Contract HPSE-CT-1999-00004. It also organised one exploratory workshop funded separately as an accompanying measure and one exploratory workshop funded by the European Science Foundation.
The scientific findings can be summarised under the following headings:
- Labour market asymmetries
- Policy rules
- Ageing
In addition to the implementation of the original contract a major result of the ENEPRI project is that it has developed into a long-term collaboration among its partner institutes. This collaboration continues beyond the duration and scope of the initial Commission contract, and has been extended to other research institutes not initially included in the ENEPRI contract. Thus ENEPRI has not only intensified its activities, but it has also extended its membership: From its founding 8 member institutes, ENEPRI has increased to twenty-one partners from the EU-27 countries. Consortiums made up of ENEPRI partners also in association with non-ENEPFRI partners have submitted a number of research projects to the 5th and 6th Framework Program, several of which have been favourably evaluated. In the spring of 2004 three research projects and one research training network was already being implemented and contract negotiations were finalised or under preparation for two other projects.
