ChaMP Network – Inaugural conference 2024
Inaugural Conference of the
ESCB Research Network on Monetary Transmission (“ChaMP”)
Thursday, 25 and Friday, 26 April 2024
Frankfurt am Main
The European System of Central Banks (ESCB) – encompassing all central banks of the European Union – is launching a major research initiative to enhance the understanding of the transmission of monetary policy in the euro area and the EU: the ChaMP Network (“Challenges for Monetary Policy Transmission in a Changing World”). The Network will examine transmission through the financial system and to the real economy, with a particular focus on the ultimate impact on firms’ price-setting and inflation. More information about the objectives, organisation and activities of ChaMP can be found on the Network’s website. This inaugural conference marks the beginning of the initiative, aims to communicate its objectives to the public, will feature relevant new monetary transmission research and discussions of its policy implications, including market perspectives. This will be achieved through a combination of research presentations, speeches by policymakers and a panel bringing together different views.
