The European Central Bank organises a biennial conference on household finance and consumption. The conference aims to foster empirical and theoretical research on the implications of household heterogeneity for the accumulation of assets and debt, consumption and saving behaviour, and the transmission and effects of monetary policy. It focuses on research that uses household-level data, with a special interest in the data from the Household Finance and Consumption Survey (HFCS).
