Welcome to the website of ENGIME, the international research network on Economic Growth and Innovation in Multicultural Environments.

ENGIME was financed by the European Commission, Fifth RTD Framework Programme, Key Action Improving Socio-Economic Knowledge and co-ordinated by Fondazione Eni Enrico Mattei. The Project started in July 2001 and ended in December 2004.

A series of six multidisciplinary workshops were organised with a view to define the conditions (policy, institutional, regulatory) under which European diversities can promote innovation and economic growth.

This website contains all information on the implementation of ENGIME. You may find the programme of each workshop and the publications, the results of the survey as well as any relevant news from the policy world. All documents are downloadable free of charge, and printable. You may also find information on the ENGIME's partnership, the link to their official website and also to other interesting websites.

Final report

Although ENGIME has come to an end, its story continues with two other FP6 projects...

•  SUS.DIV (Sustainable Development in a Diverse World, FP6 - Priority 7) is a Network of Excellence that builds on the ENGIME's results to enlarge the scope and the activity of research. It aims to integrate European research capabilities across disciplines and Countries in order to provide society and polity with the instruments required to manage cultural diversity as a key element of a new strategy towards sustainable development. SUS.DIV brings together 32 institutions, 21 of those were either members of ENGIME or participated in ENGIME workshops. As a NoE, SUS.DIV includes research, training and dissemination activities. The Network will be working on the themes of cultural diversity for the next five years.

•  EURODIV (Cultural Diversity in Europe: a Series of Conferences, supported by FP6, Marie Curie Actions Programme) will organise a series of five Conferences on the understanding of cultural diversity in Europe and the ways of dealing with diversity and its dynamics in the globalisation era. The project built on the results of ENGIME to structure the thematic foci of the Conferences. With respect to ENGIME, EURODIV has a stronger focus on training of young researchers and intends to represent a unique opportunity for young researchers and leading scientists to communicate in a spirit of mutual learning, providing an organised and formal training at the frontiers of current research. All local organisers are former members of ENGIME;
