One Bank Research Seminars

​While the Bank strives to be an international thought leader in the areas of its policy responsibilities, making progress on such a broad agenda requires input from the wider community of academics, policy makers and experts, both within economics and finance and from disciplines well beyond.  One way in which the Bank actively engages with the academic community is through our regular seminar series, which take place weekly on a variety of research and policy topics.  Academic visitors and research staff present current research in a 90 minute seminar format in these series.  Recent seminar speakers include Jose Fernandez-Villaverde, Franc Portier and Valerie Ramey.  For more information, please contact the One Bank Research Seminar Team.  These seminars are closed to the press.

The Bank puts diversity and inclusivity at the heart of its practices and our seminars are no exception.  We recognise the value of cultivating a seminar environment in which people are encouraged to share their views openly.  Because of this we seek to invite diverse speakers from a variety of backgrounds to help encourage a range of thought.
