Annual Research Conference: Charting the European economy post-COVID-19: unusual times require unconventional policies
Organised since 2004, the 2021 edition of the Annual Research Conference (ARC) is co-organised by the Directorate-General for Economic and Financial Affairs (DG ECFIN) and the Joint Research Centre (JRC). The ARC is the forum of excellence where European Institutions exchange knowledge and engage in dialogue with researchers at academic institutions and think tanks, practitioners at civil society organisations and citizens.
This year, DG ECFIN and the JRC invite the European Central Bank (ECB), the European Investment Bank (EIB), Eurofound and Conference participants to chart the European economy post COVID-19, recognising unusual times require unconventional policies. The Conference welcomes the findings of the High-Level Group convened by Commissioner Paolo Gentiloni discussing on the challenges posed to Europe by the post-pandemic economy and society.
Conference participants shall listen to speakers discuss diverse topics such as the unequal effects of the pandemic for citizens, firms and governments, the consequences of the pandemic for value chains, and the pronounced effect it had on school-age children and women. Academic researchers and EU officials shall discuss how the Recovery and Resilience Facility helps the EU emerge stronger and more resilient from the COVID-19 pandemic.
