Towards EMU@10 - Research resources

This umbrella project embraced a wide array of research activities to mark 10 years of Economic and Monetary Union (EMU)

Archived. Final update 27 March 2009.

In May 2008, it was 10 years since the final decision in May 1998 to move to the third and final stage of EMU – together with the decision on which Member States would participate – followed by the launch of the euro on 1 January 1999.

The EMU@10 project had three dimensions:

  • assessing the economic achievements of the euro area’s first decade,
  • identifying current and future challenges, and
  • developing policy proposals in response to those challenges.

In addition to its large-scale internal research project, DG ECFIN involved leading external researchers and financed a series of essays and studies.
