DNB Research policy

Consistent with the approach adopted throughout the Eurosystem, the purpose of research activities at De Nederlandsche Bank is to: i) provide research results relevant for the formulation of policy advice on monetary and supervisory policies; ii) maintain and use econometric models in order to construct economic forecasts and projections and compare the impact of alternative policy choices; and iii) communicate with the academic and research community, for example, through the publication of research results in peer-reviewed scientific journals and by participating in and organising of research conferences and workshops.

In 2009, DNB research was evaluated by an external committee. In response to this assessment, DNB initiated a multi-year revision of its research policies, resulting in the 2010 research programme and an adjusted list of journals in which DNB staff is encouraged to publish.
