The concept of the research workshop, the combination with the preceeding conference and the policy orientation attracted widespread attention and appreciation by the about 50 workshop participants from scientific institutions, industry, associations, policy and authorities. The feedback was to move on and emphasize even more the policy focus as well as to give more time for the plenary discussions.

FSC Research Workshop 2018 – PROGRAM
1 Nov. 2018 – Berlin  |  9:30 a.m. – 4:15 p.m.  |  TU Berlin

Policy-oriented workshop relating to the Financial Stability Conference: “From Risk Reduction to Risk Sharing: How to align opposing Policy Concepts and shape a balanced, resilient financial Architecture in the EU?”

The Financial Stability Conference 2018 on 31 Oct. was followed by the FSC Research Workshop on 1 Nov. at Technical University Berlin to discuss and deepen relevant aspects of the conference topics. Early stage, PhD and established researchers of related disciplines (economics, law, finance, polititcal economy, social sciences) as well as policy makers and experts from institutions and organisations all over Europe were invited to draft policy contributions on related research questions, and to present and discuss them at the workshop.

We received a good number of contribution ideas/sketches and selected nine. The challenge was to hold a policy-oriented presentation. Presenters were encouraged to focus on description of the issue, reasoning, conclusions, message and policy options in a way that also non-academics understand. A general demand to all presenters was to refrain from model explaining and mathematics, but to highlight policy-oriented aspects. Further description of task and subjects in the call. Insofar this workshop was as well a communication task to bring presenters’ messages in a clear and time-limited way to a (‘non-academic’) audience.
