next economy

European economies appear to have found a way back towards modest growth, but the legacy of the global financial and EU sovereign crises is still weighing heavily on economic recovery and living conditions.

Redressing socio-economic conditions across Europe requires a revision of economic policies at both domestic and European level as well as the ability to drive and make the best of ongoing transformations that affect our societies: digitalisation, automation, globalisation, climate change, etc.

On top of managing transitions, FEPS activities focus on re-discovering avenues in which European economic integration can serve as a catalyst for prosperity and cohesion.
