The EUROFRAME network was founded at the end of 1998 as an initiative of the nine independent research institutes towards more integrated forecasting and macroeconomic policy analysis in the European Union. The Institutes are leading European Research Institutes with significant experience in business cycle analysis, macro-economic forecasting and economic policy analysis. They have a variety of approaches to forecasting and analysing policy, and the combination of diverse methods strengthens the joint results.
In 2004 the EUROFRAME group of Research Institutes launched its annual June Conference Series on Economic Policy Issues in the European Union. The aim is to discuss topical economic policy issues for the European Union bringing together academics, economists from independent research institutes, national government administration, European and international institutions.
Prometeia Associazione will take part to the conference, that will focus on the greater cohesion across Europe in monetary, fiscal and macroprudential policy while set against an increasingly fractured and polarized international (trade) environment. In particular, the conference will address challenges concerning monetary policy normalisation and greater policy cohesion in the fiscal and macroprudential policy areas. It will also address the implications of disruptions to trade due to Brexit and increased global tensions between the United States and China.
