Abstract (German)

EASY-ECO-2005-2007 is a series of seven conferences and training courses, which are scheduled to take place in Austria, Germany, Hungary, Poland, Romania, Slovakia and the UK. About 600 academics and practitioners from all over Europe are expected to participate.

The series of events facilitates a continuous exchange of experience on fields of application like
-National strategies and policies for sustainable development
-EU structural funds and agricultural funds (especially in EU new member states)
-Local Agenda 21 activities, urban and rural development programs
-Corporate Sustainability and Corporate Social Responsibility
-Development Aid

and on methodological issues like
-Sustainability Impact Assessment
-Optimization techniques, such as Cost-Benefit Analysis
-Statistical and econometric measures, such as Multi-Criteria Analysis
-Quality standards and Indicators for evaluations

As the challenge of capacity building is most significant in EU new member states, their needs will play a prominent role throughout the series of events.
