Visiting fellows are expected to be physically present at the bank on a regular basis during the week, participate in the banks professional environment, be integrated in the activities of the Research Unit, and work towards the completion of their PhD thesis. Fellows are strongly encouraged to use the extensive data available at Danmarks Nationalbank for their research, collaborate on research projects, present their work to the banks economists. More information on the activities of the Research Unit can be found at https://www.nationalbanken.dk/en/research/Pages/default.aspx
