The Wim Duisenberg Research Fellowship Programme, which is organised by the Directorate General Research (DG/R), welcomes applications from leading economists in academia, central banks and top research institutions.
The programme aims to:
promote policy-relevant research of the highest academic standards; give research staff exposure to and experience in the most recent advances in economic research; and provide eminent scholars with an insight into the ECB’s policy-making environment.
Research fellows produce papers of a theoretical or empirical nature for presentation at internal and external conferences and for publication in the ECB Working Paper Series and, possibly, a refereed journal. The research project must focus on issues of relevance to in the work of DG/R.
Participants in the programme exchange opinions, insights and experience with ECB staff members, both in DG/R and in other business areas.
