RESPONDER LogoEuropean Union FP7


The RESPONDER consortium consists of two ministries, five universities and three research institutes, which have been selected to combine the required skills and abilities. Therefore the consortium represents a focused but still complementary range of expertise:

  • in the relevant thematic area (sustainable consumption and economic growth);
  • representing different paradigms and approaches (ranging from pro-growth to de-growth);
  • coming from research and policy making;
  • with high expertise in content as well as in methodology.
