Banque de France, Banca d'Italia, Sciences Po and EIEF, in cooperation with the CEPR, are organizing their fourth joint research conference on trends in firm financing, firm organization and firm dynamics, to be held in Rome on 9-10 December 2021.
The conference aims to create a forum for discussion on issues related to the recent patterns of firms' activity, the organization of production and financing decision, as well as their determinants, consequences and implications for policymaking. This year's issue of the conference particularly welcomes contributions highlighting and investigating new challenges facing firms in the post-Covid world, including the need to adapt to climate change risks, as well as assessing the cost and benefits of policies targeted at firms during the pandemic.
The conference will feature two keynote lectures by Antoinette Schoar (MIT) and Ralf Martin (Imperial College).
Interested authors should submit a detailed extended abstract or, preferably, a complete paper in PDF format accessing https://editorialexpress.com/conference/FirmOrgDyn by August 22, 2021. Decisions of acceptance by the program committee will be announced by the end of September.
Depending on sanitary constraints at the time of the meeting, the conference may be held partly or entirely online.
