Euro Area Economic Growth Slows in June - EuroCOIN Gives Lowest Reading Since Dec 2001

26.07.2005


The latest value of the EuroCOIN™ indicator released by the Centre for Economic Policy Research (CEPR) shows:

- CEPR’s EuroCOIN reading for June 2005 points to a slowdown of economic activity for the 12 countries that make up the euro area. The upturn signals given for March and April have been more than offset by a decrease in the May and June readings for EuroCOIN, indicating that the direction of euro area economic growth remains uncertain.

- In the euro area, the cyclical component of quarterly GDP growth decreased from 0.329 in May to 0.242 in June. This is the lowest EuroCOIN reading since December 2001. The May figure has been revised downwards.



- The overall indicator weights signals coming from different macroeconomic variables. Interest rates, industrial production indices, financial variables, labour-related variables and surveys point to a reduction of growth, whereas interest rates give a positive signal.

- EuroCOIN figures from March 2005 are provisional and may be subject to revision:

June 2004:
0.593

July 2004:
0.518

August 2004:
0.457

September 2004:

October 2004:

November 2004:

Im Focus: Why we need erasable MRI scans

New technology could allow an MRI contrast agent to 'blink off,' helping doctors diagnose disease

Magnetic resonance imaging, or MRI, is a widely used medical tool for taking pictures of the insides of our body. One way to make MRI scans easier to read is...

Im Focus: BAM@Hannover Messe: innovative 3D printing method for space flight

At the Hannover Messe 2018, the Bundesanstalt für Materialforschung und-prüfung (BAM) will show how, in the future, astronauts could produce their own tools or spare parts in zero gravity using 3D printing. This will reduce, weight and transport costs for space missions. Visitors can experience the innovative additive manufacturing process live at the fair.

Powder-based additive manufacturing in zero gravity is the name of the project in which a component is produced by applying metallic powder layers and then...

Im Focus: Molecules Brilliantly Illuminated

Physicists at the Laboratory for Attosecond Physics, which is jointly run by Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität and the Max Planck Institute of Quantum Optics, have developed a high-power laser system that generates ultrashort pulses of light covering a large share of the mid-infrared spectrum. The researchers envisage a wide range of applications for the technology – in the early diagnosis of cancer, for instance.

Molecules are the building blocks of life. Like all other organisms, we are made of them. They control our biorhythm, and they can also reflect our state of...

Im Focus: Spider silk key to new bone-fixing composite

University of Connecticut researchers have created a biodegradable composite made of silk fibers that can be used to repair broken load-bearing bones without the complications sometimes presented by other materials.

Repairing major load-bearing bones such as those in the leg can be a long and uncomfortable process.

Im Focus: Writing and deleting magnets with lasers

Study published in the journal ACS Applied Materials & Interfaces is the outcome of an international effort that included teams from Dresden and Berlin in Germany, and the US.

Scientists at the Helmholtz-Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf (HZDR) together with colleagues from the Helmholtz-Zentrum Berlin (HZB) and the University of Virginia...
