Mandatory registration until February 13th, 2015 at wwwforeurope-events(at)wifo.ac.at


WWWforEurope is holding a symposium on social and environmental progress in Brussels on February 24th, 2015. It seeks to tie together the scientific analysis of the WWWforEurope research project and create a strategy towards a new European model - a "high road strategy".

In panels focusing on the social dimension, resource use and growth as well as the interrelations between innovation, employment and the environment, experts and policy makers will discuss important aspects of such a model.

By exchanging ideas and receiving expert input, stakeholders will gain a vision of the common path ahead to create a European Union that offers attractive employment within an innovative economic environment that is socio-ecologically sustainable.
