Raising EU Productivity: Lessons from Improved Micro Data
The goal of MICROPROD is to contribute to a greater understanding of the challenges brought about in Europe by the fourth industrial revolution and the associated ‘productivity puzzle’ in a context of globalisation and digitisation, and to provide alternative policy options to better address these challenges.
Thereby the group takes a holistic view of the productivity puzzle, with the aim of understanding the microeconomic drivers behind it, as well as its macroeconomic implications for growth and cohesion in the European Union.
