In 2016, Danmarks Nationalbank established a new, independent Research Unit, to support the policy decisions of Danmarks Nationalbank by providing a conceptual framework to assess policy-making challenges, and economic models and tools to analyse the economy. Economists in the Research Unit are expected to produce high-quality research to be published in refereed journals and to participate in the international academic and central banking debate. The Research Unit runs the Danmarks Nationalbank PhD Program, and is part of the Economics and Monetary Policy Department. Economists throughout all core departments at Danmarks Nationalbank conduct research in a wide variety of areas in Macroeconomics and Finance.
The Economists: Starting on the first of October 2022 the Research Unit will be led by Steffen Andersen (Head of Research) in collaboration with Renato Faccini (Deputy Head of Research). A full list of economists currently engaged in research at Danmarks Nationalbank is available here.
