Economic growth and innovation in multicultural environments

Objective

The EU can be thought of as the biggest laboratory of intercultural collaboration of today's world. The process of enlargement and the immigration from outside EU will further increase the degree of diversity. It is a fundamental objective of this thematic network to provide to European researchers an interdisciplinary forum that studies the complex relationships between economic growth and innovation and cultural diversity. The working idea is that a useful approach to understand the costs and benefits of European diversity is to think of Europe as a potential reproduction on a world scale of some of the characteristics that urban centres have on a national and regional scale, given the high density of population and the variety of cultures represented. Using cities as a laboratory of diversity, a pattern of multidisciplinary workshops is proposed to assess likely costs and benefits associated with cultural diversity.
