Call for policy contribution proposals

Junior and senior scientists and scholars – including PhD candidates, early stage and PhD researchers – in the disciplines of economics, law, finance, banking and political economy as well as researchers from public authorities, central banks, institutions and civil organisations are invited to signal their interest and submit policy contribution proposals to draft contributions (not academic papers) on research questions of envisaged conference topics and aspects thereof as well as topical issues in the context of the Corona crisis.

Submission deadline
Proposal deadline for policy contribution ideas/sketches: 28 July 2020.
Proposals for policy contribution subjects / research ideas could address various aspects of the following four thematic clusters:
  1. Implications of the Corona crisis on financial stability and the financial system
  2. Climate change, the transition to a low-carbon economy and sustainable finance
  3. Resilience of financial institutions and crisis management frameworks in the EU
  4. ECB strategy review and the formulation of policies in the light of changing roles

Focus is set on the first two (1. / 2.) thematic clusters. Proposals may relate to a broad bundle of terms and notions as regards the above thematic clusters, and we are also open to unconventional ideas. We welcome in particular preliminary and forward looking contribution proposals discussing options and conclusions on the basis of a clear analysis and reasoning as well as personal viewpoints and opinions.

We appreciate in particular submissions on issues in the context of the impact of the Corona pandemic and the measures taken as well as issues relating to climate change.
