ISIGrowth

Innovation-fuelled, Sustainable, Inclusive Growth (ISIGrowth)

Starting May 2015 this project is funded by the European Union under the call 'The European Growth Agenda' of the Horizon 2020 program. 


The main goal of ISIGrowth is twofold. First, it will provide novel and comprehensive diagnostics of the relationships between innovation, employment dynamics and growth in an increasingly globalized and financialised world economy. Second, on the grounds of such diagnostics, it will elaborate policy scenarios and we will deliver a coherent policy toolkit to achieve the Europe 2020 objectives of smart, sustainable
and inclusive growth.


In order to deliver the comprehensive diagnostics and coherent set of policy tools, the project will undertake the analysis from several, highly complementary, angles, namely:

(i) the long-term dynamics of European economies, considering especially their degrees of innovativeness, their patterns of structural transformation, and their growth performances;

(ii) the position of European economies in the global production and financial networks, in order to study the effect of increasing globalisation of production and finance on the emerging de-industrialisation patterns observed in some European regions;

(iii) the nature and drivers of the observed increasing inequality in an attempt to disentangle purported ‘skill biases’ of technical change, ‘globalisation effects’, ‘financialisation effects’ and possible broader institutional causes;

(iv) the multiple links between the financial sector and the real economy, which are important for the rates of innovation, growth and income distribution;

(v) the dual role of innovation as a driver of income and employment growth and a labour-saving factor, relating the ensuing patterns to the flows of job creation and destruction;

(vi) the links between ‘Schumpeterian’ patterns of innovation and ‘Keynesian’ mechanisms of demand generation, and study the conditions under which their combination and different ensembles of policies can drive socially inclusive and environmentally sustainable growth.


The project we will employ (i) state-of-the-art econometric techniques combining rich micro, industry, market-, regional and country level data together with ‘theory-informed’ historical case studies of key industry actors in particular sectors; (ii) network approach to stuy the possible dynamics that are crucial to growth (e.g. mitigating financialisation and deindustrialisation, fostering innovation and sustainable development); (iii) formal but empirically-grounded models as laboratories for policy analysis exploring the conditions under which smart and sustainable growth (as described above) can be achieved by different combinations of innovation, industry, fiscal and monetary policies.
