Micro- and macro-based methods in assessing the impact of investment

This workshop will discuss methods for accurately evaluating the performance of public and private investment initiatives.

Date: April 5, 2017, 10:30 am Topic: European Macroeconomics & Governance

On 5 April 2017 Bruegel and the European Investment Bank organised a workshop to discuss impact assessment of investment.

Impact assessment have gained a lot of attention in the recent years, following the need to accurately evaluate the performance of public and private investment initiatives. The European Investment Bank has worked on developing and critically re-evaluating these methods and reflected on the best practices which policy makers and practitioners should take into account when designing and implementing micro- and macro-based impact assessment frameworks.
