The EUROFRAME network was founded at the end of 1998 as an initiative of the ten 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 takes part in the conference, that focuses on the challenges posed by climate change. Public opinion has changed and European policy-makers, businesses and the financial sector have started to recognise the importance of climate change and biodiversity on the lives of people and the economy. Climate action must stand at the core of long-term growth and infrastructure planning. How do policy-makers ensure that the costs and benefits of climate action are shared equitably at a time when multilateral frameworks have come under threat?
