A decade since disaster: Lessons from the economic crisis


With this issue of the Research*EU Results Magazine, on the 10th anniversary of Lehman’s collapse, we wanted to showcase 14 finished or soon-to-be-finished projects that have delved deep into the causes, consequences and lessons learnt from the crisis. Many of the projects express their hope that their findings can be positively used by policymakers to help address the social challenges still left unresolved by the 2008-2010 crisis, whilst others have devised innovative solutions that will help regulators and policymakers to predict and/or mitigate the effects of a future downturn.

The magazine then continues with our nine regular thematic sections, as well as a list of upcoming events hosted by or involving EU-funded research projects.
