This online event was organised in the framework of MICROPROD, a research project that aims to improve our understanding of productivity, its drivers and the way we measure it. Panellists presented preliminary evidence based on firm level data on France, Germany and Italy on how the pandemic and subsequent aid given has affected their level of productivity.
The event aimed to contribute to better understanding of the so-called ‘cleansing’ effects, the role of loans and grants provided, heterogenous effects across industries, and geographical regions and impacts on industries' new registrations and defaults.
