Banka Slovenije

Steering committee representative: 

The aim of research activities at the Bank of Slovenia is to provide support and actively contribute to academic research in the fields of economics and finance. Research policy of the Bank promotes publications in peer-reviewed journals and steers research projects so as to provide high-quality support to the decision-making process at the Bank, the ESCB and policy making in general.

European central banking network

The Bank of Slovenia in cooperation with CEPR launched a initiative whose mission is to foster cooperation among research departments of participating central banks on selected key topics, with a focus on Emerging Europe.

The main objective  of the ECBN is to bring the problems of Emerging European countries closer to the centre of the debate. The network will make it possible to examine national experiences in a comparative setting, using a common framework of analysis.

The main activities will revolve around an annual workshop, which will discuss the output of the common research programme of the network and will include both academics and policy-makers.

The ECBN organized its 1st Research Policy Conference in October 2015.
