The EU-27 has been set on the path to becoming a leading global economic force. The human and natural resources of Europe offer enormous possibilities for economic and social developments. Critical to these developments are trends in consumption and consumer behaviours, together with the potential for consumers to act as innovators in markets. The paper discusses trends in consumption and consumer markets in the contemporary context of economic downturn. An agenda for collaborative research across EU and Russian networks and interests is offered.
