Research at the Bank of Greece
Conducting economic research and analysis on issues related to the tasks of a national central bank, including those arising from its membership of the Eurosystem, are an integral part of the Bank’s activities. They provide input to the monetary policy discussions which take place in the Governing Council of the ECB and help further understanding of the Greek economy, in particular, and the euro area economy, more generally. Policy areas include monetary economics and policy, prices, labour markets and economic activity, forecasting, fiscal policy and international economics.
Apart from its own research agenda, the Bank conducts research in the wider framework of the Eurosystem through its past and current participation in various Eurosystem networks such as: the Monetary Transmission Network (MTN), the Inflation Persistence Network (IPN), the Wage Dynamics Network (WDN) and the Household Finance and Consumption Network (HFCN). The Bank also participates in the Euro Area Business Cycle Network (EABCN) and the South East European Monetary History Network (SEEMHN).
In order to promote research, the Bank of Greece organizes conferences, workshops and seminars on topical issues of interest to academic economists and policy makers and has developed research links with other institutions.
Most of the Bank of Greece’s research activities are conducted under the supervision of the Special Studies Division.
