XX Milan European Economy Workshop
Knowledge creation, public entrepreneurship and social justice, June 23-24 2022
The XX Milan European Economy Workshop “Knowledge creation, public entrepreneurship and social justice” was organized by the Jean Monnet Centre of Excellence, Department of Economics, Management and Quantitative Methods, University of Milan in collaboration with CIRIEC International.
“The world is rediscovering the role of government to face the great challenges of our time: social inequality, public health, climate change, data governance. However government is often not ready to meet its new tasks. For decades management capacities and human capital in the public sector have been downgraded by excessive reliance on market solutions. It seems now apparent that we need a rejuvenated government – not just a regulator – but an actual public entrepreneur, enabling new knowledge creation and triggering innovation. This will allow to find new ways to deal with, for example, the energy transition, affordable public health, big data. The workshop will explore new models of government intervention, particularly through knowledge-based organizations providing innovative public services.”
