CERGE-EI has become a partner of EconPol Europe

14 February, 2019

EconPol Europe, the European network for economic and fiscal policy research, has welcomed five new associate partners to expand its reach into Spain, the Netherlands, the Czech Republic, Switzerland and Portugal. The new associates join founding partners in Germany, France, the UK, Finland, Austria, Italy and Belgium to take the total number of university and non-university institutions in the network to 14.

Clemens Fuest, president of the ifo Institute and EconPol speaker says: “There are many diverse roots of opinion in member states across the EU and in Brussels. EconPol’s strength is to build bridges between these debates. Expanding our network allows us to harness the expertise of many more experts across Europe to provide evidence-based policy advice within the EU.”

The network was founded in spring 2017 by the ifo Institute, along with eight renowned European research institutes. A further five associate partners, including CERGE-EI, were added to the network in January 2019. Together, we are a new voice for research in Europe.

Joint interdisciplinary research covers sustainable growth and best practice, reform of EU policies and the EU budget, capital markets and the regulation of the financial sector, and governance and macroeconomic policy in the European Monetary Union.
