The EIB conference on economics & finance is an annual event organised by the Economics department of the Bank.

Held on 27 October in Luxembourg, the conference brought together academics, policy makers and companies to discuss productivity and Europe’s long-term growth potential. It reviewed the empirical evidence on productivity growth and its drivers, with a particular focus on industrial structure and flexibility and discussed policies to boost productivity growth in Europe.

The conference also zoomed in on the particular role of ICT and the e-economy for productivity growth. The papers presented at the conference will be published in Volume 16 (2011) of the EIB Papers.
