ONE Conference Brussels 2014: Policies (R)Evolution and Every European Digital

24 April 2014, Brussels

The Future has begun. Member States and regions must lose no time in preparing the next generation of EU programmes for growth, says Commissioner Hahn after MEPs' vote on radical reform of EU Regional Policy in July 2013.

The new programming period brings new investment budgets for Member States, seeking synergies between Regional Policy and Horizon 2020 in order to maximise the innovation opportunities. The data-driven economy can provide Europe with a chance to emerge from the multifaceted crisis with new capabilities. Are Europeans ready for the Data Revolution? Are politicians able to make informed choices and manage changes?

The ONE Conference is facilitating the joint effort of EU partners to build links between information networks and ICT Observatories for reaching ambitious common objectives of Europe 2020. The event is taking place under the auspices of the Czech Ambassador to the EU.

COEURE Executive Committee Meeting

27 February 2014, Florence

COEURE - COoperation for EUropean Research in Economics - is a project intended to bring together the key stakeholders in the European economic research space - scientists from the different strands of economic research in Europe, economic policy makers, and funders of economic research - and which, by a process of stocktaking, consultation and stakeholder involvement, is aimed to formulate an Agenda for Research Funding for Economics in Europe.

It is framed within the European's Commission Horizon 2020 initiative, the next European Framework Programme for Research and Innovation, Social Sciences and Humanities Area. Consequently, the main objectives of COEURE are to evaluate the strengths and weaknesses of the European research in economics and to map the frontiers of economic research, assessing the European contribution to these frontiers and evaluating its potential to contribute to the policy issues on the European 2020 Agenda.

Therefore, COEURE will be investigating how economic research addresses the following crucial policy issues on the European political agenda. In order to do so, it will produce a series of surveys on the different policy issues. Surveys will be focused around 12 main topics: (these topics might be included in a link and not directly in the page, in order to make it shorter)

  1. Data and methods
  2. Population, migration, aging and health
  3. Inequality and Welfare
  4. Human capital and education
  5. Labor Markets
  6. R&D, innovation and growth
  7. Competition and Regulation in markets for goods and services
  8. Financial markets
  9. Energy environment and sustainability
  10. Fiscal and monetary policy
  11. Cities, regional development and transport
  12. Trade, globalization and development
  13. More details on the project and the conference are available at www.coeure.eu.

The COEURE Project will hold its first Executive Committee Meeting on the 27th of February in Florence, Italy. This meeting is aimed at bringing together the project's partenaires and discussing these objectives, as well as the scope and the methodologies of this cooperative project.

Non-price competitiveness

27 February 2014, Paris

"Mapping European Competitiveness" (MAPCOMPETE) is a FP7 proposal of six European universities and research centers (from Germany, France, Italy, Belgium and Hungary) to provide an assessment of data opportunities and requirements for the analysis of comparative competitiveness in European countries.

The aim of this project is to provide a thorough assessment of data opportunities and requirements for the analysis of comparative competitiveness in European countries. Work will provide a comprehensive overview of the datasets which are either used to construct already existent competitiveness indicators or could represent the source to build new indicators. Also, the conditions and requirements to match datasets on different topical, technical and regional levels will be analyzed, both within and across countries. The project plans to identify steps to enhance the quality and availability of existing data and new methods and sources for new data collection will be suggested. The objective is to contribute to designing new research directions leading towards better competitiveness indicators in order to establish a bridge between its micro and micro dimensions.
