A Dynamic Economic and Monetary Union
The EUI signed its first Horizon 2020 Research and Innovation Action (RIA): A Dynamic Economic and Monetary Union (ADEMU). The other institutional members of the consortium are: University of Cambridge, University of Bonn, Toulouse School of Economics, University College London, Catholic University of Portugal, Barcelona Graduate School of Economics, and Charles University in Prague.
ADEMU is a project which has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme (Call H2020-EURO-SOCIETY-2014) under grant agreement No 649396, and has received an EU Contribution of €2,499,999.00 for 36 months.
Professor Ramon Marimon is the scientific coordinator of the project, in which other EUI Professors (ECO and LAW) also participate.
Recent events have made this project even more timely:
“In response to the European debt crisis and associated deep recession, a number of important steps have recently been taken towards redesigning the institutional architecture of EMU, based on the roadmap outlined in the Van Rompuy Report (2012). But these institutional innovations – and especially the ‘fiscal compact’, the ESM, the SSM and the SRM – have relatively weak theoretical foundations. In particular, there is a noticeable gap between policy-oriented analyses of the precise EU challenges, and the major developments in dynamic macroeconomic theory of the past three decades.”
ADEMU started on June 1, 2015. The Kick-Off Conference will take place at the University of Cambridge, October 8 – 9, 2015, and the Final Conference will take place at the EUI – Florence “State of the Union”, May 2018.
