New Growth in Europe?

-
Erwin-Schrödinger-Saal
Plenary / Keynote & Panel
German and English language

Is Europe facing a longer period of stagnation? Is the European social and economic system still perceived as a model system? Do we need to adapt the EU’s institutional framework to generate sustainable growth and employment? Do we have to redefine the concepts of “growth” and “welfare”?
