Conferences

1st FINPRO - Finance and Productivity Conference

The Competitiveness Research Network (CompNet), the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD) and the Finance department at the Leibniz Institute for Economic Research (IWH), invite submission for the 1st FINPRO Conference on the intersection of two significant research fields: productivity and finance. In line with the mission of CompNet to act as a hub to connect researchers and (micro) data providers from both the realm of policy making and academia, we seek to attract papers of the highest academic quality that include, but are not limited to the following topics:

  •  Productivity measurement at the micro level
  • Micro productivity and aggregate real activity
  • Credit constraints and investment
  • Inefficient lending
  • Funding innovation and entrepreneurs
  • Financial repression, factor accumulation, and reallocation
  • Macroprudential and monetary policy effects on productivity
  • Transmission and interaction of financial and factor market policies
  • Feedback loops between financial and non-financial agents
  • FinTech and Venture Capital

The FINPRO conference will take place at the EBRD, London on December 2nd and 3rd, 2019. Papers should be submitted to FINPRO@iwh-halle.de by July 31, 2019 and will be reviewed by a scientific committee. We welcome both empirical and theoretical contributions. Whereas we are particularly interested in studies that utilize CompNet data, this feature is not a prerequisite.
