Sustainable Finance

1st Research Meeting on Sustainable Finance
Research Follow-Up on HLEG and the EU Action Plan


May 4, 2018
10:00 - 13:30


DIW Berlin
Room 3.3.002a
Mohrenstr. 58
10117 Berlin

After a major conference on the report of the High Level Expert Group on Sustainable Finance in Berlin, organized by DIW Berlin together with the European Commission and the "Hub for Sustainable Finance" on 22.2 in Berlin, we sat down with a few interested colleagues from various institutions in the field of sustainable finance and decided that it would be a good idea to have a "place" to discuss the research and analysis, needed to support the successful implementation of the EU Action Plan.

The aim of the research meeting is an open, informal exchange to promote the discourse on "sustainable finance" from a research perspective and to work together constructively on the basis of our different research fields and experiences. The informal discussion in a small group allows interactive and open discussions.


10:00-10:30 Short summary of HLEG report and Action Plan, only in terms of "Fields of Action"/Research areas

10:30-11.15 Short (3-5min) introduction and impulses of the participants, in which direction they research (against the background of the report and action plan)

Short break (variable)

11:30-13:00 Identification of important research questions and need for analysis along the "fields of action"/research areas and forms of possible cooperation, follow-up meeting

13:00-13:30 Closing with sandwiches (depending on needs and interests, discussion of potential joint actions, applications, etc.)
