Ifo Annual Meeting 2014

The 65th Annual Meeting of the Ifo Institute took place on Thursday, 26 June 2014 in the Grosse Aula of the Ludwig Maximilian University of Munich.

The motto of this year’s Annual Meeting is “Safeguarding Prosperity with Energy”. Successfully structuring the magic triangle of energy supply security, cheap energy prices and a reduction in climate-damaging gases is one of the major challenges of the years ahead. The keynote address will be given by Prof. Christoph Buchal, Forschungszentrum Jülich. In a panel discussion Prof. Christoph Buchal, Prof. Aldo Belloni, board member of Linde AG, Jochen Homann, President of the German Federal Network Agency for Electricity, Gas, Telecommunications, Post and Railway, and Prof. Hans-Werner Sinn will discuss the key issue of this year’s meeting. The expert panel discussion will be chaired by Ulrich Schäfer, Chief Economics Editor of the Süddeutsche Zeitung.
