Welcome to the WWWforEurope project!

What kind of development strategy should Europe opt for in the face of the financial crisis and the big challenges ahead: globalisation, demographic shifts, climate change and new technologies? What kind of strategy will guarantee Welfare, Wealth and Work for Europe in the long term? These are essential questions for Europe’s future that need to be answered today. These are the questions an ambitious European research project is working on. Its name is its mission: Welfare, Wealth and Work for Europe – WWWforEurope.

Europe's midlife crisis - a questionnaire on problems and solutions

We are approaching the final phase of the WWWforEurope project to design a new growth path for Europe. It could not come at a more interesting point in time, with many unsolved problems, high uncertainty, and new challenges for Europe. Please take a look at our most recent project summary for some tentative results and send us your thoughts.

To make your feedback easier, we have developed a short questionnaire about the main topics addressed in the project and the challenges Europe is facing, as well as our tentative answers, e.g. the likelihood of much lower growth, the importance of inequality, and the instruments to prevent climate change.

You can answer it online or download it here, complete it, and send it to wwwforeurope-office(at)wifo.ac.at.

It only takes 5 minutes – and your feedback would be much appreciated.
