Human Capital Leading Indicators: How Europe’s Regions and Cities Can Drive Growth and Foster Social Inclusion

The ground-breaking study Human Capital Leading Indicators: How Europe’s Regions and Cities Can Drive Growth and Foster Social Inclusion is the result of a year-long research project, staffed by a team of 11 social scientists and co-funded by PROGRESS – European Community Programme for Employment and Social Solidarity (2007-2013). The team conducted in-depth case studies of seven European cities and regions – Bratislava, Emilia-Romagna, Helsinki, Navarra, Sofia, Stockholm and West Midlands – evaluating their human-capital endowment, utilisation and productivity. The study was launched at a high-level roundtable which featured, inter alia, László Andor, European commissioner for employment, social affairs and inclusion, Dirk Ahner, director-general at DG Regional Affairs and Xavier Prats-Monné, deputy-director general of DG Education and Culture.
