CEPR is planning a roundtable discussion for ECB Forum participants on the debate on Euro Area safe assets. How has the case for Euro Area safe assets evolved? Is there a link between safe assets and the international role of the euro? Where does the SBBS proposal stand? Are there alternative ideas that would merit further study?

A new eBook summarising the original 7+7 proposal and presenting a selection of contributions to the debate since then will also be published by CEPR next week and will be available at the Sintra conference.

Please use Firefox, Chrome, Edge or any other web browser that is not Internet Explorer when applying online.

We invite you to submit a paper proposal or express interest in attending the 2019 CEPR Public Economics Symposium. The Symposium will take place on 20-21 June 2019, hosted by the Department of Economics and the UBS International Center of Economics in Society at the University of Zurich.

The goal of the symposium is to provide a forum for high-quality work in public economics and to bring together economists in the field from across Europe as well as key researchers from outside the region. Paper proposals are invited in any area of public economics. Both theoretical and empirical work is welcome.

This year, the general theme of the symposium is ?Public Finance: Macro Insights.? We are therefore particularly interested in topics related to macroeconomic approaches and insights to our understanding of recent inequality trends, the effects of public policies, such as social insurance or tax and transfer programs, and their welfare consequences.

Our keynote speaker for the conference will be Iv√°n Werning (MIT).

The event provides an opportunity for researchers from different universities and countries to discuss their work in a relaxed atmosphere and to develop long-term collaborative relationships. It also provides an opportunity for young researchers to meet and discuss their work with senior economists. The conference brings together around 40 economists for a period of two days. To foster the desired interaction we ask that participants stay for the entire duration of the symposium.


Travel and accommodation expenses will be covered for all participants according to the CEPR Travel Guidelines. If you could contribute to the costs of your attendance from a research grant at your disposal, however, this would free up funds for other participants.
