WWWforEurope at the UNIDO Expert Group Meeting

On March 2nd and 3rd, 2015, the United Nations Industrial Development Organisation (UNIDO) held an expert meeting on "Economic growth, inclusive and sustainable industrial development and sustainable consumption and production in the post-2015 development agenda". The meeting was held as a platform to discuss issues of relevance to the UN Global Sustainable Development Report 2015, dedicated to economic growth, inclusive and sustainable industrial development and sustainable consumption and production.

Karl Aiginger and Michael Böheim of the Austrian Institute of Economic Research were invited to participate at the meeting and contribute to the report by providing a policy brief on "Fostering sustainable economic growth by redefining competitiveness and industrial policy" (PDF link). Based on the research produced within the WWWforEurope project, the policy brief develops a strategy towards a systemic industrial policy aligned with beyond-GDP goals.
