The workshop was organised by the Economic Governance Support Unit for the ECON Committee on 11 December 2019.

The EU fiscal framework has often been claimed to be too complex and an assessment by the European Commission is expected soon. During the workshop, three prominent experts (C. Cottarelli, F. Heinemann and G. Kopits) presented their views based on studies prepared on the request of the EP. Furthermore, N. Thygesen presented the recent findings by the European Fiscal Board.
