The international conference organized by the Euro4Europe project team offers an opportunity to discuss and rethink key theories, concepts, and methods on economic integration, business cycles’ asymmetries and synchronization, the transmission of macroeconomic shocks on national, supranational, and regional scales. The Euro4Europe project, funded by the EU Social Fund, explores the impact of European integration on business cycle asymmetries (BCA) and provides empirical evidence about long-standing disputes whether integration increases or decreases BCA.

The conference organizers are keen to hear from researchers who rethink theories and propose new concepts and methods on national business cycle synchronization, transmission of macroeconomic shocks, economic integration and its impact at different geographical scale, regional business cycle synchronization’ impact on resilience and recovery of regions.
