Europe Lab: Competitiveness and inclusive growth

The Europe Lab aims to support the design, launch and implementation of actionable agendas for public-private collaborations to increase competitiveness and inclusive growth in Europe.

Date: October 12, 2016, 12:30 pm Innovation & Competition Policy Tags & Topics

This is a closed-door, invitation-only workshop.

The Europe Lab is a partnership between the World Economic Forum, the European Investment Bank and Bruegel. It aims to increase competitiveness and inclusive growth in Europe by supporting the design, launch and implementation of actionable agendas for public-private collaborations. This is the first workshop of the Europe lab and will be hosted by Bruegel.

Competitiveness is recognized as a key driver of growth. Improving competitiveness while ensuring the inclusiveness of the economic growth process requires coordinated efforts between the public and private sectors. Private sector investment and know-how, in association with government action, can foster a more innovative and dynamic economy. It creates jobs, boosts productivity and can unlock potential growth for an inclusive, cohesive and prosperous Europe.

In addition, globalisation and the new wave of digitalisation are catalysing a fourth industrial revolution, opening up unprecedented opportunities for Europe in challenging times.

Income convergence during the crisis: did EU funds provide a buffer?

This paper shows that economic convergence continued during the crisis for the EU as a whole, although at a slower pace, but for regions in the EU14, and especially in the euro area, convergence appears to have stopped during the crisis, or even switched to a divergence path.

‘Old China’ bad, ‘New China’ good: Growing divergence in Chinese corporate health

Divergence in debt levels and corporate health in China is growing, with many state-owned companies still stuck in the past and new industries such as tourism and healthcare overtaking the old ones. While fiscal and monetary stimulus may temporarily cover up the problems of companies in the old industries, a restructuring of these sectors seems inevitable.

The breakdown of productivity diffusion

The OECD has been pushing the idea that the productivity slowdown is not so much due to a lack of innovation but rather due to a lack of innovation diffusion between firms.
