LONDON Dec 2 (Reuters) - European equity futures rose on Wednesday, a day ahead of a key European Central Bank (ECB) meeting at which the ECB is expected to unveil new economic stimulus measures.

Futures for the Euro STOXX 50, Germany's DAX, France's CAC and Britain's FTSE 100 were all up by between 0.4-0.5 percent.

Investors are pricing in a deposit rate cut and an increase in the size, scope and length of the trillion-euro bond-buying programme at the ECB meeting on Thursday, and this has put pressure on the euro whose weakness has in turn given European exporters such as carmakers and luxury goods stocks a lift. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
