The Centre for European Transformation stands at the forefront of Europe's journey towards a sustainable future, addressing the intricate web of transformational challenges such as innovation, digitisation, and climate change. Recognising the interconnected nature of these challenges, the Centre emphasizes the urgency to activate both the demand for and supply of capital to unlock Europe's growth potential.
Our Mission: The Centre powers excellence across all areas of scholarship crucial for advancing Europe's sustainable transformation. It brings a renewed focus to issues of financing institutional and economic infrastructure, the role of transformative finance, and the politics of transitioning to sustainable growth.
Our Vision: The Centre aspires to be Europe's leading think-tank, bridging the gap between academics, business leaders, and government officials. Together, they aim to collaboratively address the 21st-century challenges and foster sustainable transformation and growth in Europe.
Funded by DWS and launched this year, the Centre for European Transformation tackles urgent challenges including innovation, digitisation, climate change, energy and sustainable supply chains.

Robert Engle, Professor Emeritus of Finance at New York University Stern School of Business
Robert Engle, was awarded the 2003 Nobel Prize in Economics for his research on the concept of autoregressive conditional heteroskedasticity (ARCH). He developed this method for statistical modeling of time-varying volatility and demonstrated that these techniques accurately capture the properties of many time series. Professor Engle shared the prize with Clive W. J. Granger of UCSD. Professor Engle is the Co-Director of the Volatility and Risk Institute at NYU Stern. In this role he has developed research tools to track risks in the global economy and make these publicly available on the V-LAB website.
