At a time of unprecedented challenges, Europe’s competitiveness and standard of living are threatened. Economic forecasts for 2050 paint a dark scenario – economic decline, an ageing population, social capital and labor force shortage, increased energy, food and water constraints, and a challenging role for the EU on the global stage.
However, we believe, that with the right policy instruments and a comprehensive innovation framework, these predictions are avoidable.
