Sustainability and competitiveness in evolutionary perspectives: Environmental innovations, structural change and economic dynamics in the EU

Author

Abstract

In this study we investigate the EU’s economic, environmental and innovation performances from a sector-based perspective. We correlate the various sectors’ performances, taking into account the role of changing specialization. In addition, we examine environmental sector performance related factors through a shift-share decomposition analysis.
