Task 1: "Stock Taking"
CONNEX factsheet: Taking Stock of the Existing Wealth of Governance Research
CONNEX has started with activities to make transparent on-going research in different parts of Europe. Links have been established to all relevant national and trans-national research programmes and a network of scholars has been built up covering 23 European countries.
Within the first 18 months a survey has been organised in order
- (a) to evaluate the state of the art by national reports and
- (b) to collect data on relevant research in progress all over Europe.
This information will go into an on-line database open to all prospective users. International conferences on key issues have been and will be organised in order to gain a critical assessment of the overall state of the art in Europe. These activities are bound to reveal the wealth of knowledge already produced and blank spots in research.
