Green Growth Challenge - 2nd SEEK Conference

  • Conference Call
  • Due to the remarkably high level of interest in the first SEEK Conference in 2011, the Centre for European Economic Research (ZEW) is delighted to announce the second conference of its research programme "Strengthening Efficiency and Competitiveness in the European Knowledge Economies" (SEEK). The prime goal of the conference is to elucidate the challenges to pursuing a smart and sustainable growth path in the economies of Europe. Since this issue has been receiving increasing attention in the worlds of politics and academia, a second aim is to bring together policy makers and scientists to discuss the hurdles to developing green innovations within innovation ecosystems.

    • the role of innovation in tackling societal challenges
