Get Involved Civil Non-Profit Company is a youth initiative that was founded in 2017 and addresses students and young people through the variety of its projects and initiatives. The main objective of Get Involved is to broaden and promote the economic literacy through a multidisciplinary approach and to enhance interdisciplinarity and interaction among young people coming from different scientific backgrounds, while in its core lies experiential education. Moreover, through our initiatives, we aim to highlight contemporary economic issues, taking into consideration the views and ideas of all stakeholders (Institutions, Universities, Markets). At the same time, the objectives of Get Involved include, among others, the connection of leading members of the academia, professionals, representatives of institutions and businesses with students.
The Simulation Conference of the European Central Bank (from now on ECB), the only of its kind at a European level, constitutes the main initiative of Get Involved. It is one of the most important student activities at national level as university students of Economics, Law and European Studies have the opportunity to gain valuable knowledge and experience on contemporary economic issues. Since 2019, the ECB Simulation Conference has been supported and hosted by the Bank of Greece, while in 2020 its findings were included – through the ECB Listens programme – in the first review of the ECB strategy in 18 years. Finally, in 2021 the ECB was represented in the proceedings of the ECB Simulation Conference.
“Intelligence”, which constitutes the second pillar of the activities of Get Involved, includes all the scientific initiatives of Get Involved. It consists of two distinct projects; the “ESG Insights” and the “ECB Economic Bulletin Summary”.
To achieve the highest possible standards for the students, we are honoured to cooperate with distinguished professors and professionals (Advisory Board), institutions, businesses and a significant part of the most active student organisations.
Our goal is to get as many people as possible to join Get Involved and through our various activities to help expand both their knowledge and their skillset.
