How Europe's Economies Learn

Coordinating Competing Models

Edited by Edward Lorenz and Bengt-Åke Lundvall

  • Argues that a radical transformation of the European economy, and a substantial upgrade of its knowledge base, it is unlikely to occur unless due attention is paid to the diversity of its national components and of the methods used to learn
  • Draws out the implications of multi-level EU governance for designing policies that can further promote the goals of the Lisbon process
  • Argues comparisons of Europe's economies with those of the US and Japan are misleading
