  Add to Calendar 2018-01-18 14:00 2018-01-18 15:30 Europe/Paris "Boosting investments in social infrastructure in Europe" - Conversations on Transnational Governance with Prof. Edoardo Reviglio

*PLEASE NOTE THE EVENT HAS BEEN CANCELLED*

With many sections of the European population living under increasingly difficult conditions (in the wake of economic crises, structural challenges due to the creeping effects of globalisation, and demographic changes), the need to address the existing gap in social infrastructure is becoming ever more prevalent.

While European social policies and models can be considered the pride of the continent, these new demands and challenges have demonstrated the need to expand and modernise them. To address some of these issues, the European Long-Term Investors Association (ELTI) decided to create a High-Level Task Force on Financing Social Infrastructure in Europe (HLTF) with the aim of assessing how to boost long-term investment in social infrastructure (such as in the areas of education, health and social housing). The rationale of such an initiative being that social infrastructure plays a key role in creating inclusive growth and strengthening the social bases of Europe.

As one of the authors, Edoardo Reviglio will discuss the report of the High-Level Task Force on investing in Social Infrastructure in Europe (chaired by Romani Prodi and Christian Sautter) published in December 2017, and the solutions and recommendations proposed as to how to address the issue.

Biography:
Edoardo Reviglio is Chief Economist and Head of Economic and Statistical Research at the Cassa Depositi e Prestiti (CDP) and a Professor of Economics at LUISS Guido Carli in Rome. He has previously held various positions in the public sector, to include his role as Director of the IRI Studies Office, Member of the Council of Experts of the Treasury Department at the Ministry of Economy and Finance, and Director of the Ministry of Economy and Finance for International Affairs.
