Anniversary Conference of Intereconomics/Wirtschaftsdienst
New Growth for Europe
Berlin · 10 October 2016 · 09:30 am - 08:00 pm
The joint Intereconomics/Wirtschaftsdienst anniversary conference will seek to identify new sources for economic growth in Europe. What investments can be made now to foster future growth? What is the appropriate role for the state? Have the measures taken to combat the economic crisis opened new opportunities for European growth, or will they merely lead to further stagnation? How can Europe best exploit its economic potential? Join us as Tito Boeri, Karl Whelan, Daniel Gros, Clemens Fuest, László Andor, Erik Berglöf and many other prominent European economists discuss these important issues.

Annual Intereconomics/CEPS conference
Inefficient Inequality: The Economic Costs of Gender Inequality in Europe
Conference Program (PDF)
Brussels · 3 November 2016 · 09:00 am - 04:00 pm
Much attention in research is given to the existence and measurement of gender inequality, but relatively little attention is given to the costs that result from the presence of inequality. At this conference researchers, policy-makers, and business representatives will discuss the costs and inefficiencies that result from gender inequality. What are potential solutions? Which policies? At what level?
Join us and put your view forward.
Studies and conclusions will then be published in a coming issue of Intereconomics.
