Join the live webcast: ECB Forum on Central Banking, 11-12 November
For the first time, the Forum on Central Banking organised by the European Central Bank (ECB) and ordinarily held in Sintra, Portugal will take place entirely online. The event will bring together central bank governors, academics, financial market representatives, journalists and others to exchange views on current policy issues and discuss this year’s theme: “Central banks in a shifting world”.
You are invited to join the Forum’s webcast, which will be live on 11 and 12 November 2020. Participants this year will discuss topics central to the ongoing review of the ECB’s monetary policy strategy, including the consequences of recent trends in (de)globalisation, the impact of the coronavirus (COVID-19) on European and global economies, the macro-financial implications of climate change and the challenges posed by low natural interest rates. One of the highlights this year will be a high-level policy panel with the President of the ECB, Christine Lagarde; the Governor of the Bank of England, Andrew Bailey; and the Chair of the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System, Jerome H. Powell. You can view the full Forum programme here.
At the close of the conference, the winner of this year’s young economists’ competition will be announced and awarded the prize of €10,000. Ten finalists were chosen from PhD students from across the world based on their research on monetary policy-related topics. Find out more about the finalists and their research here.
