|Description:||WWWforEurope Conference on Modelling Growth and Socio-ecological Transition - Welfare, Wealth and Work for Europe|
|Subject:||Welfare, Wealth and Work for Europe (WWWforEurope) is a four year research project within the 7th Framework Programme funded by the European Commission. The aim of the WWWforEurope conference on Modelling Growth and Socio-ecolo-gical Transition is to promote the exchange of ideas among researchers active in the broad field of applied modelling, taking into account smart, sustainable and inclusive growth. The availability of models incorporating the social and the environmental dimension is an important prerequisite to objectively and realistically evaluate the potential consequences of a socio-ecological transition. In particular the intended and non-intended economic, social and environmental effects of different instruments and policy options related to this transition need to be clarified. This conference is therefore dedicated to the comparison of such (existing or yet to be developed) models, as the WWWforEurope project aims at identifying alternatives to the growth path underlying Europe's current socio-economic model.
