The importance of intellectual assets in generating innovation, and thus in promoting economic growth and competitiveness in the EU, is widely recognised. As evidence to this is the significance attached to R&D and innovation in the Lisbon Process.

The project’s aim is to develop a new approach and new methods for assessing the performance and adequacy of the pension systems with full respect of the sustainability constraint. The project should provide a strengthened conceptual and scientific basis for assessing the capacity of European pension systems to deliver adequate old age income maintenance in a context of low fertility and steadily increasing life expectancy.
The ultimate goal of the project is to provide policy options to improve the potential growth of the EU and attainment of a high level of employment, taking into account the challenges from enlargement and the environmental aspirations adopted in the EU. The extensive use of numerical general equilibrium models and econometric estimations will permit the evaluation of the impact of the existing different tax/benefits systems and will yield policy options that can be quantified and adapted to different political constraints.
