New educational material: “FACTS”
The European Central Bank (ECB) has published FACTS, a multi-lingual collection of 40 presentation slides on central banking in Europe. Each slide is accompanied by an explanatory text which speakers can refer to or hand out.
- European integration
- Organisation and tasks of the ECB, Eurosystem and ESCB
- Monetary policy of the Eurosystem
The topics are arranged in single, stand-alone slides which can be selected as required by the speaker. The high-resolution slides can be downloaded as PowerPoint files. The explanatory texts can be printed straight from the HTML page – together with an image of the corresponding slide – and distributed for example as a hand-out.
FACTS is intended for intermediate-level learners with some prior knowledge of central banking in Europe. It extends the ECB’s existing range of educational material and general-interest print publications. It is only available online.
