Steering committee representative: 

The objective of the CNB’s economic research is to produce research outputs that are relevant for the CNB’s core activities and publishable in leading academic journals. The CNB's economic research is organised around annual research programmes guided by medium term research priorities and consulted with the CNB’s Research Advisory Committee. 

Research projects are coordinated in four areas: monetary policy, macroeconomic modelling, financial stability, and the real sector and fiscal policy. Research projects are implemented by experts from the CNB's specialised departments, including the Economic Research Department, in collaboration with external researchers. The Economic Research Department coordinates the process of defining priorities, project submission process, project implementation and publication of research papers in the series of CNB Working Papers, CNB Research and Policy Notes, and CNB Research Bulletin.
