Objective

The technological, economic and social changes known as the "New Economy" pose challenges to sustainable development, economic competitiveness, civil society and quality of life. The project brings together a unique combination of scholars and information technology specialists, founding members of the world modelling and scenario analysis disciplines and some of the most profound commentators on the New Economy. The overarching objective is to seize the moment before the opportunities offered by the New Economy slip away and the issues are resolved in ways that undercut European values, institutions and interests. The target audiences are policy makers, economic and social actors in the unfolding of the New Economy, "final users" and research communities.

The primary objective is to produce a rich library of scenarios that combine informed and consistent assumptions about the New Economy. The second objective is creation of integrated tools for supporting scenario and policy development and analysis. The third objective is an active societal discourse to engage the wider world in project activities and support preservation and enhancement of European values, institutions and interests in the context of the global New Economy.
