On May 20-21 2016, an ADEMU workshop was held at the European University Institute, organized in collaboration with the International Monetary Fund and the European Stability Mechanism. The workshop aimed to analyze the potentials of risk-sharing mechanisms in the European Union, evaluating existing strategies and discussing new proposals for a more efficient system.
The workshop benefited from the contribution of top economists from the organizing institutions and from a number of other Universities and research institutes (Zurich University of Applied Sciences, London Business School, University of Amsterdam, University Cambridge-INET, New York University, Washington University, Wuhan University, CEPS, Zew), as well as from the EC, the ECB, the Bank of Spain and the Bank of France. The juridical aspects of risk-sharing were also covered, thanks to the contribution of legal scholars.
Thomas Cooley (NYU), Chair of the ADEMU Advisory Committee, shared the following statement with the other members of the Advisory Committee: "The conference was an enormous success because it illustrated the potential of this project to bring together policy makers and researchers from multiple public, transnational agencies and academic researchers from multiple disciplines to discuss a well defined topic."
