Im Rahmen eines Symposiums soll das neue Finanzausgleichsgesetz (FAG 2017) aus finanz-, verwaltungs- und politikwissenschaftlicher Perspektive sowie aus Sicht der Praxis kommentiert und kritisch erörtert werden. Im Mittelpunkt der Diskussion sollen Lösungsmöglichkeiten zur Optimierung des Prozesses von Finanzausgleichsverhandlungen stehen. Was hat sich mit dem Finanzausgleich 2017 verändert? Konnten wichtige Reformprozesse angestoßen werden, und wie werden diese weiterverfolgt? Wie müsste der Reformprozess gestaltet sein, damit ganzheitlichere Reformen möglich sind?

Although research has produced important insights about current pressing societal problems its findings do not always reach its targets in society, policy or the market. This hampers its potential to be fertilised and transformed into innovative approaches, services and products with potential benefits for citizens. One of the pillars of "Horizon 2020" is to support research that tackles societal challenges. One area of focus is the concept of "Inclusive Innovative and Reflective Societies" (IIRS) which addresses issues such as reducing inequalities and social exclusion, overcoming the financial crisis, decreasing job insecurity and fostering European cultural heritage. The project "DANDELION – Promoting EU-funded Projects of Inclusive Innovative and Reflective Societies" aims to support the uptake and valorisation of IIRS research and improve its dissemination towards citizens, policy makers, academia and media. This will be achieved through a series of innovative and creative communication activities targeted at a range of audiences.

Plans for economic and monetary integration in the European Union call for fundamental changes in fiscal relations among EU members and other countries. The 2012 Blueprint for the European Monetary Union (EMU) calls for deeper integration of fiscal policies at the level of domestic EU members, including establishing EU own-source revenues. The 2013 Social Dimension of the EMU emphasises that this fiscal revisioning must also improve coordination of employment and social policies post-crisis to counteract declines in state revenues, evaluate fragmented policy initiatives during the crisis, and improve human well-being and capabilities ends in themselves and as preconditions to stable integration and sustainable growth. This project will carry out in-depth comparative, interdisciplinary research using constitutional, legal, technical, institutional, qualitative, and quantitative methods to address four core issues: options for expanding EU legislative competences or governance mechanisms for effective harmonisation of member tax and social policies; reform options for state-level coordination of fairer, more stable, and more sustainable tax and social policy regimes; strategies for the increased effectiveness and harmonisation of tax administration and compliance structures within the EU and non-EU areas; and recommendations for true own-source EU revenues. This project is relevant to fundamental political and structural challenges that face the EU as it pursues deep fiscal integration. Fiscal policies encompass both revenue production and state spending priorities, and have tremendous impact on life choices, business planning, and economic development. Whether under conditions of stable growth or disruption, state revenues remain at the heart of state governance capacities; throughout, the well-being of the population as a whole remains at the heart of social and political stability and productivity.
