In early September, EconPol’s speaker and president of the ifo Institute Clemens Fuest and Bruegel founding director Jean Pisani-Ferry presented their paper on financing the EU to the EU Economic and Financial Affairs Council (ECOFIN). In it, they propose that revenue from the European emissions trading system should be used to finance the EU fund for economic recovery (Next Generation EU), which was adopted in July. Read the full report and accompanying press releases.
The second CESifo – EconPol Europe Workshop takes place online on 15-16 October. The workshop brings together junior and senior researchers whose research focuses on public policy evaluation and optimal policy design in EconPol’s research areas.
Plans for our annual conference on 25 and 26 November, this year held completely online, continue apace. Our first day keynote speaker and panel are confirmed and the full program will be announced very soon – watch out for a special conference mailing with all the details. In the meantime, we are delighted to confirm that German broadcaster Monika Jones and Brussels-based journalist Jennifer Baker will host the conference. Our dedicated conference microsite, with full details of the program and how you can take part, will be launched soon.
EconPol’s regular moderator and upcoming conference host Jennifer Baker was joined by Sara Baiocco (EconPol Europe, CEPS), Arnaud Lefranc (CY Cergy Paris Université) and Larissa Zierow (EconPol Europe, ifo Institute) to discuss the role of educational policies throughout the life cycle, from early childhood to adult learning. Watch the hour-long subtitled video of their discussion on our event page, which also includes presentations.
