Workshop on European Integration, Economic Convergence and Productivity

European integration in the economic, monetary and financial field have had very different consequences on productivity growth across sectors and regions, driving an economic wedge between EU citizens, both within and across countries. Technological progress is believed to spur economic dynamism, and is necessary to lift some EU regions out of stagnation, yet technological progress might accentuate regional disparities. Economic policies shaping the future of the European Union pay attention to cohesion yet in a quickly changing geopolitical and climate environment, such policies might require additional fiscal tools or investment to cope with these challenges. This workshop aims to study the dynamics of European integration, regional convergence, the transition, and the policies that guide these processes.
