While the economic policy agenda in Europe is currently dominated by lagging activity reflecting public and private balance-sheet problems and still impaired transmission of monetary policy, the quest for growth and competitiveness is a longer term issue that clearly deserves renewed attention. This note provides a brief overview of the work carried out carried out under the auspices of DG ECFIN's Fellowship Initiative 2012-13 on the theme of "Economic Growth perspectives for Europe" which should help to map out a new growth narrative for and across Europe over the medium-term.
