Background to the event:
Europe’s economy is slowly coming out of troubled waters and what some have described as ‘a perfect storm’. However, it will not be enough for its leaders to simply determine Europe’s present position and patch the sails. There is a clear need to readjust its navigational instruments.
The current debate on the EU’s post-Lisbon economic strategy is about steering towards sustainable growth, a clean and green economy, long-term competitiveness and prosperity and sustaining the European way of life for generations to come. This is the perfect opportunity for ERRIN, the European Regions Research and Innovation Network, to initiate a debate on the right course of action towards full economic recovery and competitive regions fit for the knowledge economy.
