Emerging Economies Consortium

Collaboration with non-EU developing-country researchers for the AUGUR project has been built through a network of institutions and individual researchers in four major emerging economies: Brazil, China, India and South Africa.

Some of these researchers have been actively involved in using the CAM macro-economic model (which is part of Work Package 1) for projecting trends to 2030 of their own countries, Europe and the world and have drawn out interesting policy lessons from their own perspectives. Some of the financing for Work Package 4 has been used, in fact, to train these developing-country researchers on the CAM model.

These researchers have also chosen to focus their research on financial issues (Work Package 2) and technology and innovation (Work Package 3).

The Principal Investigator for Work Package 4, Professor Terry McKinley, who is the Director of the Centre for Development Policy and Research at the School of Oriental and African Studies, has had the responsibility of organising the contribution by these developing-country researchers to the AUGUR project.
