EU and US Perspectives: Changing climates


Format: Online via Cisco Webex
Date:    Tuesday, 12 October 2021
Time:    13:30 CET (Brussels, Frankfurt, Paris) ⁄ 07:30 EST (New York)

Common threads are clearly visible in how the US and Europe are tackling the Covid-19 crisis, be it temporary measures to protect the supply side or seizing the opportunity of green and digital transformations to support recovery medium-to-longer term. Both the ECB and the Fed have redesigned monetary policy strategies and the Biden Administration has reaffirmed US interest in close economic ties with Europe. Moreover, both the US and the EU face questions on how to tackle the broader geopolitical landscape. Behind these commonalities, important differences nonetheless reside and these hold significant implications in a world of changing climates.

Please join us for what promises to be a lively discussion with leading policymakers and experts from both sides of the Atlantic.
