Welfare, Wealth and Work in Europe, Joint OECD – WWWFOREUROPE workshop

10 December 2014, Paris

The OECD and WWWforEurope have cooperated on a workshop exploring "How to further enhance Welfare, Wealth and Work in Europe?". "New Approaches to Economic Challenges" (NAEC) and WWWforEurope have many points in common: They share a broad, multi-dimensional approach and aim to provide a basis to inform policy-making on long-term social, economic and environmental challenges. On December 10th, 2014 a joint OECD – WWWforEurope workshop, organized by the Permanent Delegation of Austria to the OECD and WIFO, took place in the OECD headquarters in Paris. Members from the WWWforEurope consortium presented findings of the work carried out so far, as well as central topics and also controversial themes from the project. The attending stake-holders and OECD representatives engaged them in lively discussions.

The first session was devoted to an overview of the background and central questions of the WWWforEurope project. Domenico Rossetti explained the role of large-scale research projects such as WWWforEurope to support the work of the Commission and to help to manage the socio-ecological transition. Karl Aiginger placed the spotlight on the need for Europe to aim for a "high-road" strategy and outlined the vision for Europe 2050.

In the second session, Martine Durand, Dirk Pilat and David Bailey provided inputs on the question of long-term productivity and drivers for economic change. Industrial policy and the role of manufacturing took a prominent role in this session. In the third session, Jeroen van den Bergh engaged Shardul Agrawala, Anthony Cox and the audience with an impulse statement in which he proposed to shift policy-focus consistently away from the issue of economic growth and to adopt an agnostic or neutral approach to GDP growth.

In the fourth session, Georg Fischer, Thomas Leoni and Stefano Scarpetta discussed how welfare states can adapt to meet the "inequality challenge" resulting from the long-term increase in economic inequality and the additional negative impact of the crisis on distributional dynamics. This session revolved around the strengths and potential shortcomings of the social investment strategy as encompassing social policy paradigm. In the final session, Mathilde Mesnard and Elena Flores summarized main findings of the workshop and provided an outlook on the challenges that lie ahead.

Come on board the conference Transport Safety: societal challenges, research solutions

4-5 December 2014, Palazzo Ducale – Genoa, Italy

It is now time to register to be able to attend the conference on Transport Safety Research, on 4-5 December 2014, in Genoa, Italy.

This Conference, convened by the Italian EU Presidency and the European Commission, will gather researchers, stakeholders, transport professionals and policy makers from the different transport modes, to assess the future needs for transport safety, and identify priorities for research and innovation activities in Horizon 2020 and beyond.

The conference will address both the safety challenges specific to each mode, common issues and concerns that cut across them – notably human factors, automation and data management – taking into account societal challenges, policy requirements, technological developments and economic benefits.

This event is expected to provide useful input towards the definition of a shared European R&I agenda, with pointers to be taken into account in the preparation of next Horizon 2020 Work Programmes, with a view to ensure the proper deployment and implementation of safety solutions resulting from research activities.
