DIOSCURI: Eastern Enlargement - Western Enlargement: Cultural Encounters in the European Economy and Society After the Accession

Duration: 
June, 2004 to May, 2007
Funding: 
EU FP6 - Specific Targeted Research Project
Research Area: 

Invoking the mythological figures Castor and Pollux, DIOSCURI focused on current encounters in Europe to predict the ways of cohabitation between the twin economic cultures of the "East" and the "West". The research fields - entrepreneurship, governance and economic knowledge - were explored in four East-Central European countries (the Czech Republic, Hungary, Poland and Slovenia) and in four countries of South-Eastern Europe (Bulgaria, Croatia, Romania and Serbia/Montenegro).
