Professor Ludwig Straub (Harvard University) will teach the EABCN Training School "Heterogeneous-Agent Macro in the Sequence Space" in Manheim. The goal of this course is to get participants up to speed on solution methods for general equilibrium models with heterogeneity, including computation of steady states, transition dynamics, estimation, and optimal policy. We will focus on the “sequence space” approach to solving these problems
The conference covers a broad range of themes related to the conduct of monetary policy. It will bring together recent contributions in this area of research, including studies with a strong theoretical basis and empirical papers. A non-exclusive list of examples of relevant topics includes: ▪ The role of climate change for monetary policy ▪ Monetary policy response to supply-side disturbances and structural change ▪ Monetary and fiscal interactions: monetary policy with high public debt levels
Professor John Hassler (IIES Stockholm University) and Professor Per Krusell (IIES Stockholm University) will teach a three day online class on "Climate Change and its Effects on Macro/Monetary Policy".

A variety of single and multiple equation models will be considered, for both small and large datasets, combined with alternative estimation and inference techniques. Theory and practical implementations will be covered.
We welcome submissions from a broad range of themes related to the consequences of the Covid-19 shock for empirical macroeconomics. Topics of the conference include but are not limited to • Rare events and disaster-type shocks • Measuring economic uncertainty and its effects • Nowcasting and forecasting in a changing environment • Inflation dynamics • Business cycle measurement Serena Ng (Columbia University) and Frank Schorfheide (University of Pennsylvania) have confirmed their participation as invited speakers.
The 7th annual research conference jointly organized by the National Bank of Ukraine (NBU) and the Euro Area Business Cycle Network (EABCN) will focus on the emerging challenges of public and private competition in payments and decentralized finance along with their legal and regulatory challenges. Confirmed keynote speakers are Prof. Markus Brunnermeier (Princeton University) and Tommaso Mancini-Griffoli (International Monetary Fund).
The twelfth conference organised by the International Research Forum on Monetary Policy (IRFMP) will be hosted by the European Central Bank (ECB) and will be held virtually on 12-13 May 2022.
The conference will feature a policy panel chaired by Isabel Schnabel (member of the ECB’s Executive Board) and comprising Loretta Mester (President and CEO of the Federal Reserve Bank of Cleveland), Lucrezia Reichlin (London Business School, EABCN and CEPR) and Refet Gürkaynak (Bilkent University and CEPR).
Professors Itamar Drechsler, Alexi Savov and Philipp Schabl will teach a four-day course entitled “Financial Intermediation and Monetary Policy”. This class will explore the role of financial intermediaries in the transmission of monetary policy. The central topics are how monetary policy affects bank lending, the supply of liquidity, risk premia, and inflation through its interaction with the financial system.
Professor Johannes Stroebel (NYU Stern School of Business) will teach an online training school on "Beliefs and Social Networks" with teaching segments on June 14-17th and practice session on June 25th.
We are pleased to announce details of the latest EABCN Training School; “Modern Macro, Money, and International Finance”. Professor Markus Brunnermeier will teach the course and Sebastian Merkel will give the TA sessions. This course will expose participants to modern continuous time modelling techniques at the intersection between macroeconomics, monetary economics and (international) finance.
The course introduces participants to a variety of advanced topics and recent developments in economic forecasting. Professors Graham Elliott and Allan Timmermann will teach the course. The course is co-organised with the Bank of Italy and will take place online.
