FRAME is a project funded by the European Commission which has developed models and empirical evidence to better understand a wide set of issues related to technology, macroeconomics, innovation, asset prices, labour markets and unemployment. The project has developed new Dynamic Stochastic General Equilibrium (DSGE) models and has generated new data in both multi-sector and multi-country settings that will allow for realistic estimates of the impact of public research and innovation activities on innovation, productivity growth and employment. New work and results have also been generated particularly in terms of TFP estimators with the aim of being of help to both academics and policymakers in understanding the impact on monetary and fiscal policy, technological adoption, asset pricing and innovation policy. Europe currently faces multiple challenges on economic, demographic and environmental fronts, which can be addressed by innovations in technology and process. Through this conference, therefore, we will aim to understand how monetary and fiscal policymaking and the development of innovation policy for the diffusion of technology are interdependent in the short, medium and long-term.
