The Project

The GRASP project aims to address policy concerns associated with growth in Europe. It emphasizes quality-improving innovation in imperfectly competitive markets and suggests optimal growth policy may depend on levels of technological (and financial) development and on seemingly unrelated yet relevant policies.

The GRASP project is a four-year European research project supported by the European Commission’s 7th Framework Programme for Research. It comprises 6 institutions from across the European Union.

The Consortium

The consortium brings together academic experts (six institutions across six member states – Belgium, Italy, Germany, Norway, UK and Netherlands). They are supported by an Advisory Board of eminent members closely connected to policymaking and economics research in the EU. Read more
