Bank of Italy, CEPR, CompNet, EBRD & IWH Conference
3rd Finance and Productivity (FINPRO)
Green Deal: reformation, evolution, and revolution

8-9 June 2023
Venue: Bank of Italy, Rome

Firms must transform production processes towards sustainable technologies in response to climate change and the emergence of policies aiming to curb carbon emissions. The energy shock due to the war in Ukraine renders this transformation not only important, but also urgent. All this requires large-scale investments and innovations by corporations, households and governments, which are also called to design the right policy-mix. The financial system will play a key role to channel this transition, evaluating current opportunities and future risks.

The Bank of Italy, the Centre for Economic and Policy Research (CEPR), the Competitiveness Research Network (CompNet), the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD) and the Finance department at the Leibniz Institute for Economic Research (IWH), invited submissions for the 3rd FINPRO conference. In line with the mission of CompNet to act as a hub to connect researchers and (micro) data providers from both the realm of policymaking and academia, we sought to attract papers of the highest academic quality that included, but were not limited to the following topics:

  • Sustainable technologies, innovation, and productivity
  • Financial stability and green transition
  • Central bank and government policy interventions
  • Funding technology transformations: banks, markets, private investors
  • Business dynamics; closing brown- and starting green-firms
  • Energy dependence and resilience
  • Defining, rating and monitoring ESG risks
  • Incentives and constraints in a circular economy

Professor Philippe Aghion (Insead, LSE and CEPR) will deliver the keynote lecture.
