20 May 2022: Empirical Banking Workshop

Abstract icon Workshop on Empirical Banking hosted by Danmarks Nationalbank on 20 May 2022.

Danmarks Nationalbank will host on May 20 a one-day workshop in the field of empirical banking. 

Over the last decade the emergence of credit registers and micro-level data has generated many new opportunities for researchers. Simultaneously, new challenges have taken center stage, from climate change to the impact of new technologies on the way monetary policy is conducted, to the challenges posed by the global pandemic. The aim of the Empirical Banking Workshop is to bring together established researchers and young scholars to discuss the most interesting research in banking. 

Logistics: The event will be hosted by Danmarks Nationalbank. We plan to host all speakers and attendees in-person in Copenhagen. Presentations will be scheduled between 9.30am and 4.00pm. All speakers are invited to attend a dinner on the evening of May 20, provided the workshop takes place in Copenhagen. Guests wishing to attend the in-person workshop in Copenhagen are required to register as early as possible and no later than May 12 via e-mail to research@nationalbanken.dk.
