Economic and Monetary Union – Deepening and Convergence

The program will be published soon.

Amid formidable challenges, Europe’s future depends not least on the capacity of its economies to converge toward their best performing peers. The conference at the start of the Austrian EU Presidency will analyze which dimensions matter most for the smooth functioning of Economic and Monetary Union (EMU) and for the convergence of Central, Eastern and Southeastern European (CESEE) countries. The conference will shed light on economic, social and territorial cohesion as enshrined in the EU Treaty. Experts from academia, business and politics will debate how to prevent economic dispersion, promote deeper integration and ensure sustainable East-West and South-North convergence. They will discuss the viability of the institutional framework, deepening of EMU, assess the Commission’s recent proposals, look into EU structural and cohesion policies and explore both the potential and policy challenges for CESEE.
