“EPOG Master Course Conference 2022”, July 3-6, Ermoupoli, Syros
The French Polytechnic of Compiègne in collaboration with the Laboratory of Industrial and Energy Economics of the National Technical University of Athens, the Chamber of Cyclades, the University of the Aegean and the support of the Municipality of Syros – Ermoupoli, organize in Syros from 4 to 6 July 2022 the “EPOG Master Course Conference 2022”. This is the annual Conference of the distinguished European postgraduate program EPOG+ (Economic POlicies for the Global transition), which is coordinated by the French Polytechnic of Compiègne with the participation of 35 university institutions from Europe and the rest of the world.
EPOG+ falls under the category of Erasmus Mundus Joint Master Degrees supported by the European Commission and is specialized in economics and in particular in Economic Policies for the global transition with three major directions: a) Knowledge, Innovation and Digital Transition, b) Macroeconomics, Financial and Socio-economic Transition, c} Development, sustainable development and Ecological Transition. NTUA participates through the Laboratory of Industrial and Energy Economics in the academic network of universities that are members of EPOG+.
The Conference will address issues related to the objectives of the program and global challenges related to growing economic and other inequalities, the major ecological crisis, rapid technological developments and the forced reorientation of economic growth and development towards sustainability and mitigation of inequalities. In addition, in conditions of uncertainty, it is imperative to review the basis of the economic policies in place that require the organic integration of the economic, social and environmental/ecological dimension and the formation of the corresponding capacities and skills for the planning and management of the necessary public policies.
The Conference will host approximately 150 delegates (academics, students and postgraduates, etc.) from Europe and the rest of the world and will conclude with a speech by the former Minister of Economics, Professor Nikos Christodoulakis as part of the session “Rethinking the global economy in turbulent times”.
