Seminars and conferences 2019

The Institute organises regular seminars and conferences to encourage knowledge dissemination and innovative thinking about issues of particular concern to the EIB Group. These serve both to help staff in their work and inform the general public.

    • The new plastics economy

      “The question is not whether a world without plastic pollution is possible but what we will do together to make it happen,” said Sander Defruyt from the Ellen Mac Arthur Foundation at a seminar on “Rethinking the future of plastics” organised  by the EIB Institute and the EIB Corporate Responsibility Department.

    • Of Brexit and financial centres

      Leading financial centres have not been impacted by the global financial crisis and few changes are likely in the medium-term with New York, London and Tokyo remaining in the lead, said  Professor Youssef Cassis, European University Institute, at an EIB Institute seminar.

    • The EIB and the “Mezzogiorno” (1958-1973)

      “Since its creation in 1958, the EIB has had a genetic relationship with Italy’s “Mezzogiorno””, said Antonio Bonatesta, European University Institute (EUI-Florence) who presented the results of a STAREBEI research on “The EIB and the “Mezzogiorno” in the context of regional development (1958-1973)”.
