The project investigates to what extent macroeconomic and S&T policies in the wider Europe are mutually compatible, how (in)compatibilities between these two areas of policy affect employment, growth and technical change in selected European countries, and will suggest new policy approaches which should integrate macroeconomic and S&T policy in order to promote structural change. The project combines quantitative analyses of macroeconomic performance and technology, with national case studies on how the macroeconomic policies affect technological performance, especially in the context of policies for harmonisation with the EU. The case studies will also investigate how EU supranational policies, in particular macroeconomic policies which are now defined or harmonised at the EU level, impact on S&T across Europe and in individual member states.
Duration: 2000 - 2002
