Dynamics of Institutions and Markets in Europe

Dynamics of Institutions and Markets in Europe

Objective

DIME stands for "Dynamics of Institution and Markets in Europe", a title meant to strongly emphasise the analysis of the dynamic features of the processes involved in the transition to a knowledge-based economy. One essential goal is to address contemporary challenges facing the European Union, its member states, its regions, its companies and its citizens in managing the transition to a knowledge-based economy and society in the context of its enlargement and of the globalization of the economy. The challenges of co-ordination and organisation involved in generating and exchanging knowledge test the limits of social science understanding and several disciplines have sought to address these issues. The economics of knowledge, the political analysis of multi-level governance, and the social and geographic understanding of proximity, for instance, must be further developed. But many pieces of the puzzle of how to better co-ordinate and organise knowledge generation and exchange remain detached and embedded in different scientific disciplines. The present challenge, and the impetus for the DIME network is the opportunity to develop means of integrating the conceptual, theoretical, and measurement tools employed by different social science communities in order to discover better means of integrating or mobilising existing knowledge as well as generating technological and organisational innovation. Integration among disciplines should favour both intra-disciplinary and cross-disciplinary developments addressing the following scientific challenges:
-Knowledge is an Essential and Specific Input in our Economic Systems
-The Central Role of Spatiality
-Organizational Frames and Governance

These scientific advances should help to address policy issues of urgent relevance for the EU:
-Globalization, Enlargement of Europe, Emergence of Regions and the Role of the Nation State
-Knowledge Divide and Inequality among Regions
