1st CEPR Frankfurt Hub Conference on 
EURO at 25 and BEYOND

Keynote speech: Isabel Schnabel (ECB, CEPR research fellow)

25 years of existence marks a significant milestone for the Euro. From the 'greatest monetary experiment' within living memory, the project has navigated challenges in its infancy, weathered a profound crisis during its adolescence in the 2010s, and confronted the impacts of the pandemic and geopolitical tensions in its twenties. Now, amidst recovery from a destabilizing inflation crisis, Economic and Monetary Union (EMU) faces questions about the lessons learned and appropriate adjustments for the future. Can the Euro area cultivate a collective maturity of judgment forged through these testing experiences?
We solicit theoretical and empirical papers on EMU, the Euro, and its future. Topics of interest include (but are not limited to):

1. Digital euro and Central Bank Digital Currencies
2. Economic and Monetary Union, Banking Union, and Capital Market Union
3. Green Euro: European Sustainability Regulation and Green Monetary Policy
4. The geopolitical perspective of the Euro
5. Monetary and financial stability: The Euro’s track record.
The final program will include both submitted and invited papers. 

Paper proposals should be submitted by September 1, 2024, at    

Decisions regarding acceptance will be made by September 20, 2024.
The final version of accepted papers must be received by October 15, 2024.
