Massimo Bottura is more than a Michelin star-winning chef. Together with Lara Gilmore, he also founded Food for Soul, a non-profit organisation seeking to reduce food waste through inclusion. On the occasion of Expo 2015 in Milan and working in concert with Caritas Ambrosiana, Massimo Bottura opened Refettorio Ambrosiano, a new kind of community canteen where chefs from around the world cooked nutritious meals for socially vulnerable guests using surplus ingredients recovered from the Expo's pavilions. The project's success led Bottura to found Food for Soul in 2016 aimed at replicating the model in other communities. Since then, Refettorio Gastromotiva in Rio de Janeiro, Refettorio Felix in London, Social Tables in Modena, Bologna and Naples, and Refettorio Paris in the French capital have all opened their doors. Further canteens are planned across the globe. This is the ninth essay in the Big Ideas series created by the European Investment Bank.

Grandi Chef italiani hanno contribuito a rendere unico un libro fatto con il cuore: Amatricianae, declinazione di Amatriciana. Tanti punti di vista, tante identità, tante visioni messe a paragone con una ricetta della tradizione italiana, che a partire dagli eventi del 2016 è diventata emblema di una possibilità di aiutare chi in quei territori, spesso, ha perso tutto. Un percorso tra la storia, le caratteristiche e le curiosità dell'Amatriciana con ricette inedite che esprimono una sapienza culinaria e una creatività gastronomica straordinarie. Al progetto ha preso parte Ugo Nespolo con una serigrafia originale riprodotta in copertina, che riassume i molteplici "ingredienti" di questa iniziativa che muove da un intento solidale, ma che vuole richiamare all'attenzione un binomio italiano indiscutibile: Gastronomia come Arte; un'arte capace di tenere insieme tradizione e rinnovamento, capace di far cogliere con occhi nuovi una realtà nota, capace di rappresentare un indiscutibile fattore di rigenerazione. Quello che ciascuno di noi fortemente si augura per Amatrice e per il suo territorio.

This book provides professionals, as well as students, with the understanding that Social Entrepreneurship and Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) are now core business principles for sustainably. It encourages social entrepreneurs in their role as forerunners, in creating new business models that develop, facilitate or implement constructive solutions to social, cultural and environmental issues. At the same time, this book views corporate social responsibility as a means of challenging existing entities to realize and modify prior unsustainable and predatory business models; and to increase social, cultural and environmental accountability. By linking these two concepts, this book prompts a paradigmatic awakening, whereby the foundational driver of business creation and management no longer rests on profit maximization, but on improvement of the quality of life for society.

Egyptian firms face significant access to finance constraints. Using panel data, this paper examines the reasons why many Egyptian firms do not use formal banking services. Using data on the location of firms and bank branches, it also investigates whether access to finance constraints are linked to the crowding-out effect of bank investments in government debt.

Ten Years Of The Vienna Initiative 2009 2019 by European Investment Bank

This year, the Vienna Initiative marks its 10th anniversary. For this special occasion, the Steering Committee has prepared a commemorative book, with essays and contributions from the key actors and institutions instrumental to the work of the Vienna Initiative since its inception. This volume provides a unique window on the Vienna Initiative's innovative crisis mitigation activities, its subsequent evolution and its current scope. At the time of the Lehman crisis, international institutions, national authorities and international commercial banks collaborated closely, taking full responsibility for their strategies in the CESEE region and voluntarily providing firm commitments on their activities. In the form of the Vienna Inititive, they built a functioning coordination platform, capable of transforming and evolving according to changing needs. Ten years later, this coordination platform remains an important of effective inter-institutional and private-private sector cooperation. The establishment of the Vienna Initiative was far from easy. However, given the size of euro area banks' cross-border operations in CESEE, a disorderly deleveraging would have been very costly for both CESEE countries and the foreign banks. With this in mind, the main stakeholders eventually got together to participate in the Vienna Initiative and achieve its main objective. The foreign banking groups committed to maintain their presence in the region, while the EIB, EBRD and the World Bank Group provided substantial financing to banks and the real economy. These efforts had a major positive impact on the region. They helped curb liquidity disruptions and restore confidence in the banking system, while alleviating balance of payments pressures. This coordinated response from commercial banks and IFIs was a prerequisite for the success of the IMF-funded macroeconomic adjustment programs in several CESEE countries. Over time, the Vienna Initiative has transformed itself from a crisis mitigation instrument to a broader coordination platform, dealing with the unique challenges of widespread cross-border banking with regulatory and supervisory interdependence, while supporting the emergence of an efficient, deep and sound banking and financial sector that supports growth in the region. In particular, with CESEE countries on a solid recovery path, the focus has shifted to tackling the legacy problem of high NPLs, or to dealing with the impact of the EU's upgraded institutional framework – particularly the creation of the Banking Union – on the host countries, most of which do not participate in the Banking Union. With the region needing to transform, up-scale its innovation capabilities and adjust to technological change, a dedicated working group has been set up to propose measures that could improve access to finance for innovative firms which typically lack tangible assets and thus may have hard time obtaining standard bank loans in a system that still offers limited alternatives. The Vienna Initiative has been a major achievement of international coordination and an important instrument for the future of the CESEE region.
