FSC Research Workshop  |  19 Nov. 2021  |  13:00 – 16:45 h  |  online

The FSC Research Workshop 2021 will be held on 19 November in conjunction with the Financial Stability Conference (FSC) as an online event. Researchers and scholars in the EU and beyond were invited to submit policy contribution proposals on aspects of the four thematic clusters of the FSC. We reviewed submitted policy proposals and selected the most promising for drafting contributions (or reworking existing papers), presentation and discussion at the workshop.

The workshop is an open event bringing together senior and junior scientists and researchers with experts from authorities and institutions, citizens and industry experts. It deepens critical aspects of the FSC discusion topics. The motto is ‘science to policy’ and the format encourages participants to take part in current debates.

FRS Research Workshop 2021  –  PROGRAMME
19 Nov. 2021   |   13:00 – 16:45  CET   |   online

Policy-oriented workshop to address topical aspects in the given 4 thematic clusters of the call for policy contributions.

The workshop discusses relevant aspects in the context of corona crisis, climate change risks and crisis management. The challenge is to give a brief and focused policy-oriented presentation to a mixed audience in a clear and structured way. Presenters are encouraged to focus on reasoning, conclusions and policy options in a way that non-academics understand. A general request is to refrain from model explaining, but to highlight policy-oriented aspects. Thus, the workshop is as well intended to bring scientists closer to policy debates.
