Europe beyond austerity: a discussion on how to restore innovation-fuelled growth? In Brussels the annual conference of the EU sponsored project ISIGrowth
The annual conference of the EU sponsored project ISIGrowth, coordinated by Prof. Dosi, will take place in Brussels on June 1 and 2. The meeting will be hosted by the European Commission and will bring together top macroeconomic experts with ISIGrowth researchers in order to discuss the project research findings on the consequences of Europe’s fiscal austerity and possible alternative solutions.
The first day (June 1) will be dedicated to a discussion on “Austerity policies and possible alternatives”. The opening session will be chaired by Giovanni Dosi. Key speakers include: Peter Dröll (DG Research and Innovation EC), James K. Galbraith (Lyndon B. Johnson School of Public Affairs, UTA), Robert Skidelsky (University of Warwick), Mariana Mazzucato (University of Sussex), and Arturo O’Connell (Central Bank of the Argentine Republic). In the afternoon a policy roundtable, chaired by Giovanni Dosi and Mariana Mazzucato, will focus on some tentative policy suggestions to stimulate innovation-fuelled growth. Participants include representatives of the European Commission and members of the European Parliament, among which Robert Strauss (Head of Unit DG EMPL EC), Elisabeth Lipiatou (Head of Unit DG RTD EC), Monica Frassoni (Co-chair, European Green Party), Fabio De Masi (GUE/NGL Group of the European Parliament), and Kathleen Van Brempt (S&D Group, European Parliament).
The second day (June 2) of the conference will be dedicated to the presentation of the activities of the ISIGrowth Civic Action Network (CAN). CAN is a network of civil society organisations for consultation and dissemination of the project research results. It includes organisations such as Attac, EuroMemorandum, Finance Watch, the European Trade Union Institute (ETUI), Friends of the Earth Europe, the New Economics Foundation, Sbilanciamoci!, the Tax Justice Network, WWF Europe, the Transnational Institute (TNI) and the Kyoto Club.
