“Shifting Europe from Austerity to Growth: A Proposed Investment Programme for 2012-2015”
18th June 2012, from 14:00 to 17:00

Ahead of the next European Summit taking place at the end of June 2012, and given the need to counter austerity measures and to provide the European Union with sound and sustainable policy proposals for growth, the Foundation for European Progressive Studies , together with the Initiative for Policy Dialogue at Columbia University (New York) and the European Council of the Labour Movement (Denmark,) are pleased to invite you to the event:

The paper is co-authored by Prof. Stephany Griffith-Jones, Columbia University (New York) and FEPS consultant, Dr Matthias Kollatz-Ahnen, former Senior Vice-President of the European Investment Bank and Lars Andersen, Director of the European Council of the Labour Movement (Denmark).

Read the paper

The meeting will discuss concrete proposals (with appropriate figures and estimates) to significantly increase lending by the European Investment Bank as well as other measures (notably the use of structural funds and project bonds), so as to meaningfully advance the European Union growth agenda. Indeed, modelling work included in the paper shows that highly needed jobs, especially for the youth, could be created in the European Union with the proposed measures.

The event will take place at
FEPS Office, 4th floor,
Rue Montoyer 40,
1000 Bruxelles
