The Euroframe group of research institutes (CASE, CPB, DIW, ESRI, ETLA, IfW, NIESR, OFCE, PROMETEIA, WIFO) will hold its 16th
annual Conference on Economic Policy Issues in the European Union in Dublin on 7 June 2019. The aim of this conference is
to bring together academics and policy-oriented economists by providing a forum for debate on economic policy issues relevant
in the European context. The 16th Conference will focus on the greater cohesion across Europe in monetary, fiscal and macroprudential
policy while set against an increasingly fractured and polarised international (trade) environment. In particular, the conference
will address challenges concerning monetary policy normalisation and greater policy cohesion in the fiscal and macroprudential
policy areas. It will also address the implications of disruptions to trade due to Brexit and increased global tensions between
the USA and China.
WIFO's Italian Euroconstruct partner CRESME, host of the 87th Euroconstruct conference on 12-13 June 2019 kindly invites to
an update on European construction market trends towards 2021. The special topic of the afternoon session is about "Investing
in water and water management". A separate conference day on the topic "water" will be held on Friday, 14 June 2019 providing
further in-depth analysis on the impact on environment, cities and buildings. This optional event is free of charge for all
Euroconstruct conference visitors.
The course focuses on a typical single-region applied general equilibrium model: the ORANI-G model of the Australian economy.
Variants of the ORANI model of the Australian economy have been used extensively for policy analysis in Australia for more
than two decades. ORANI-G, a generic version of ORANI, has been used to model the economies of more than 30 countries around
the world. The course aims to introduce participants to the ideas and techniques of CGE modelling, and to equip them to start
using, adapting or constructing CGE models for their own simulations.
