Buildings with trees and leaves on green background with growth curveThe conference aims to create a forum for discussion on issues related to the recent patterns of firms’ activity, the organisation of production and firm’s financing, as well as their determinants, consequences and implications for policymaking.

The conference will take place in Paris, at Sciences Po, December 1st and 2nd, 2022.

This year we particularly welcome contributions investigating how firms are bracing for the ecological transition:

  • How are they adjusting their strategies to policies fostering the ecological and energy transition? 
  • How are they adapting to increasing climate change risks? 
  • How are they accommodating consumers’ rising expectations in terms of corporate social and environmental responsibility?

Interested authors should submit a detailed, extended abstract or, preferably, a complete paper, in PDF format, on the conference's platform online (link) by September 2nd, 2022.
*Decisions of acceptance by the programme committee will be announced by the end of September.*

Programme committee: Federico CINGANO (Banca d’Italia), Stéphane GUIBAUD (Sciences Po), Andrea LINARELLO (Banca d’Italia), Noemie LISACK (Banque de France), Thierry MAYER (Sciences Po and CEPR), Jean-Stéphane MÉSONNIER (Banque de France and Sciences Po).
