International Linkages and Spill-overs Network (Intlink)
Against the background of rising real and financial globalisation, a top priority for central bankers is to improve our understanding of cross-border linkages and spillovers. This is particularly so given the clear pitfalls exhibited by existing economic models in the past and in the aftermath of the global financial crisis.
- Providing a forum for researchers in which they can share and compare their modelling tools, at regular meetings and special events;
- Creating an easily accessible archive of relevant tools and data which may be useful for research purposes;
- Pooling individual researchers’ expertise to address key questions of substance.
