ECB research agenda
The ECB commits significant resources to research because good research is the foundation of good policy
Economic, monetary and financial research is conducted by the Directorate General Research together with other business areas of the bank. All research is carried out under the umbrella of the Research Coordination Committee, fostering cooperation and coordination. The committee develops a common research agenda for the ECB, with annual reporting on activities to the Executive Board. The research work is coordinated across research groups, organised by topic, with members from across the organisation.
