Research at Danmarks Nationalbank is focused on issues of relevance to monetary policy and financial stability.  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. However, economists throughout all core departments at Danmarks Nationalbank conduct research in a wide variety of areas in Macroeconomics and Finance.

The Research Unit runs the Danmarks Nationalbank PhD Program and also welcomes external economists from academia and central banks conducting research on macroeconomics and finance for short or long-term visits. 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).
