The Austrian Institute of Economic Research (WIFO) kindly invites to the 91st Euroconstruct conference on 10 to 11 June 2021. The event will focus on the update of the European construction market forecasts in the wake of the unfolding COVID-19 crisis. Throughout the event, decision-makers and experts from banking, housing, non-residential construction and civil engineering will contribute with their expertise. The ongoing tense health situation in Europe again requires that the event is organised as a webinar. Join this online conference to receive numerous advantages like first-hand construction market information from the Euroconstruct members and benefit from an interactive participation during question and answer sessions. Furthermore all participants will receive the Euroconstruct Summary Report before the official sales date on 16 June 2021. More details about the event will be continuously updated on our conference website.

Research question(s): Economic complexity is typically approximated using an economy's gross export structure. Considering increasingly integrated global value chains, can economic complexity based on value-added exports better explain economic growth? Do value-added export specialisations convey a different picture of economic development from a network perspective than gross export specialisations? • Approach (empirical or theoretical models, simulation, etc.): Using value-added exports and applying non-linear iterative algorithms, I introduce a novel empirical approach to the topic of economic complexity. Moreover, in analogy to the Product Space, which uses gross exports and maps products to each other based on required capabilities, value-added exports enable a complementary visualisation of economic development and structural cross-country differences we refer to as Industry Space. • Data (if empirical, what data is used; level of aggregation; most important variables): The latest release of the World Input-Output Database is used, which covers 43 countries and 56 industries each for 2000 to 2014. • Main result(s): This approach leads to substantially different complexity rankings compared to established metrics using gross exports and the explanatory power of GDP per capita growth is considerably higher. Our study on the Industry Space emphasises the need for value-added exports in analysing economic development by providing evidence that using gross exports significantly changes the similarities between industries.

Research question(s): How much harm results from cyber incidents? − Which security interventions effectively reduce harm? − Have these answers changed over time? • Approach: Systematization of the empirical literature in several disciplines • Data: Stock markets, financial disclosures, insurance claims, news reports (breach disclosures), technical measurements, survey responses • Main result(s): Studies disagree on the harm resulting from cyber incidents − Omitted variables and sampling biases cast doubt on many results − Indicators of exposure explain more variance than indicators of preventive security − Very little is known about systemic cyber risk Policy implication(s): The market can handle individual cyber losses, but externalities creating systemic cyber risk require policy attention. Statistical institutes should extend the collection of cyber risk indicators on a representative basis.

When the vaccinations finally progress and the economy recovers again, it is also a matter of profound structural changes in energy consumption, production, consumption and mobility. For this is the only way to achieve CO2 neutrality by the middle of the century in order to limit climate change. The European Union wants to make its contribution with the Green Deal. However, the project can only be successful if its members and partner countries pursue a coherent policy. But what climate and environmental policy impulses do the crisis and economic stimulus programmes of the EU, its member countries and neighbours really provide? And what policies are needed now to ensure that the recovery of COVID-19 is accompanied by a successful green transformation of our economies?

Paid parental leave schemes have been shown to increase women's employment rates but decrease their wages in case of extended leave durations. In view of these potential trade-offs, many countries are discussing the optimal design of parental leave policies. We analyze the impact of a major parental leave reform on mothers' long-term earnings. The 2007 German parental leave reform replaced a means-tested benefit with a more generous earnings-related benefit that is granted for a shorter period of time. Additionally, a "daddy quota" of two months was introduced. To identify the causal effect of this policy on long-run earnings of mothers, we use a difference-in-difference approach that compares labor market outcomes of mothers who gave birth just before and right after the reform and nets out seasonal effects by including the year before. Using administrative social security data, we confirm previous findings and show that the average duration of employment interruptions increased for high-income mothers. Nevertheless, we find a positive long-run effect on earnings for mothers in this group. This effect cannot be explained by changes in working hours, observed characteristics, changes in employer stability or fertility patterns. Descriptive evidence suggests that the stronger involvement of fathers, incentivized by the "daddy months", could have facilitated mothers' re-entry into the labor market and thereby increased earnings. For mothers with low prior-to-birth earnings, however, we do not find any beneficial labor market effects of this parental leave reform.

Welche wirtschaftliche Rolle spielen die gemeinnützigen Bauvereinigungen in Österreich? Wie hoch ist der Wohnkostenvorteil für Bewohnerinnen und Bewohner? Welchen Beitrag leisten gemeinnützige Bauvereinigungen zum BIP-Wachstum und in welchem Ausmaß erhöhen sie den privaten Konsum und gesamtwirtschaftliche Investitionen? Antworten darauf gibt die neue Studie "Ökonomische Wirkungen des gemeinnützigen Wohnbaus", die vom Verband gemeinnütziger Bauvereinigungen beauftragt und vom Österreichischen Institut für Wirtschaftsforschung Wien (WIFO) durchgeführt wurde. Aufgrund von COVID-19 werden die Ergebnisse in einer virtuellen Pressekonferenz präsentiert. Um die elektronischen Zugangsdaten für die Veranstaltung zu erhalten, ist eine Anmeldung per E-Mail ( bis 9. März 2021 erforderlich.
