Europe in global, innovation-based competition:
Meeting ne
w
challenges or searching for ne
w
protection ?
16 January, 2007
IFRI – 27, rue de la Procession – 75015 PARIS
Since 2000, the new globalisation phase co
mbines two
major trends: an
increasing role of e
merging countries in the world econo
my and vigorous innovation-
based co
mpetition. In this context, policies to adapt to the global knowledge-based
econo
my are high on the agenda. Ma
ny countries have a
mbitious policies to pro
mote
innovation, education and a favourable business environ
ment. These supply policies are
more frequent than those ai
ming at sti
mulating “innovative de
mand” or “ventureso
me
consu
mers”. In different countries, as well as at the EU level, debates on the “right”
policies to pro
mote innovation and adaptation to the global environ
ment are still lively. In
Europe, debates on the Lisbon strate
gy take place against this background.
At the sa
me ti
me, new protectionist tendencies have e
merged in reaction to the
market inroads of so
me e
merging countries or to the new wave of
mergers and
acquisitions. In various countries, including so
me e
merging econo
mies, innovation policy
and industrial policy
measures ai
m
at pro
moting national cha
mpions. Technonationalis
m
may be back in Asia and Europe, even if R&D has beco
me
much
more internationalised
since the 1990s. In Europe and in the U.S., a nu
mber of analysts suggest on the contrary
that policies should ai
m
at co
mbining globalisation, innovation and a
mbitious social
models.
This conference presents recent work on these trends in order to contribute to the
policy debate. The focus is on European countries and on the potential contribution of
EU policies, but our European debates should fully take into account the global context.
English – French interpretation will be available during the conference.
This conference is organised with the support of JT International
