2022 ECMI Call for papers

Published in 

In partnership with CEPS, ECMI is calling for a submission of research papers in the area of capital markets, competitiveness, attractiveness and open strategic autonomy. A committee of academics and international experts will select the best paper and award the author(s) a €5,000 prize and the opportunity to present the findings at the 2022 ECMI Annual Conference that will take place on 9 November 2022. This prestigious international event brings together policymakers, academics and industry representatives to take stock of recent developments in European capital markets and analyse their long-term implications.

Research papers should cover, but are not limited to, one or more of the following areas:

  • Measuring the competitiveness of EU financial actors and the attractiveness of European capital markets (key performance indicators, KPIs)
  • Open strategic autonomy in financial services
  • The Capital Markets Union as a driver of economic recovery and resilience (e.g. SME financing, green recovery and retail investor participation)
  • Digital currencies, digital payments and digital services for retail investors: regulation, investor protection and financial stability
  • The resilience and resolution of market infrastructures (e.g. trade repositories, central counterparties)
  • The impact of monetary policies on capital markets
  • Corporate and sovereign bonds markets (issuance, pricing, trading and efficiency)
  • MiFID II (e.g. transparency, liquidity, research coverage, data)
  • EU-UK capital markets and the costs of fragmentation
  • Sustainable Finance (e.g. ESG investment, green sentiment, alternative data)
