06/10/2005 - 07/10/2005 : Research conference : Financial stability and the convergence process in Europe

Brussels, 6 - 7 October 2005

The Directorate-General for Economic and Financial Affairs (DG ECFIN) of the Commission of the European Union organised its second annual research conference in October 2005 in Brussels. The goal of the conference was to improve our understanding of the interactions between convergence and financial stability and the contributions of different branches of policy in managing the convergence process within Europe.

This two day conference gathered leading researchers from universities and international organizations, was organized around four sessions and ended with a panel discussion.

Sessions
  • Real and nominal convergence and financial stability
  • Financial stress and linkages
  • Challenges during convergence
