Governance of a Complex World 2014

Campus Luigi Einaudi, Lungo Dora Siena 100 - Turin (Italie)
After the organization of GCW 2012 in Nice (France) and GCW 2013 in Rotterdam (The Netherlands), we are pleased to announce the 3rd edition of the conference in Turin-Moncalieri (Italy). GCW 2014 is an action of EurKInD, a unique research network focusing on how knowledge, innovation, and development should articulate for a better society in Europe. It brings together reputable scientists in economics and social sciences, but also in mathematics, physics, computer sciences, environment and life sciences, belonging to European as well as non-European academic institutions (www.facebook.com/Eurkind). The theme of the conference this year is “Smart, inclusive and sustainable growth: lessons and challenges ahead”. In 2000, the EU had to become the most competitive and dynamic knowledge-based economy in the world, capable of sustainable economic growth with more and better jobs and greater social cohesion by 2020. The Lisbon post-2010 agenda clarified that growth and jobs needed not only to be smart, but also environmentally, socially and economically sustainable. The H2020 is now developing in a context where growth should be smart and green still, but with an increasing focus on how to make it more inclusive as massive unemployment prevails in most European countries. The aim of GCW 2014 is to deal with the lessons so far and challenges ahead on the issue of getting to a growth path in the EU at the same time smart, inclusive and sustainable, while attesting that knowledge creation, knowledge diffusion, company growth and innovation behavior are driven by very different factors across the EU Member States. We encourage contributions where (green) innovation is considered as a key driver to stir our complex world out of the crisis, and possible levels of governance to achieve this goal (individuals, firms, industries, regions and countries) are explicited. Like in previous editions, GCW 2014 welcomes high quality contributions proposing advances in the field of theory, empirics or policy. GCW also signals a refocused interest in the productive and innovative aspects of the economic process, as possible remedies to the persistent impact of the financial crisis. GCW finally considers the EU as a very heterogeneous set of individuals, firms, industries, regions and countries, some farther off the technological frontier and others quite close.
