Danmarks Nationalbank and economic research

PHD grant in economics

Every year Danmarks Nationalbank offers a PhD grant in economics, where the topic of the thesis is related to Danmarks Nationalbank's working areas such as monetary policy and financial stability. 

The Danish economic society

The Danish Economic Society aims to disseminate and raise the level of debate on economic issues in Denmark. This is done through the organization of lectures and through the publication of the Danish Journal of Economics, which was established in 1873 and is the leading economic journal in Denmark.
Danmarks Nationalbank provides secretarial assistance to the Danish Economic Society and has contributed to the establishment of an online version of the Danish Journal of Economics.
