Annual Research conferences

Since 1998 the Nederlandsche Bank (DNB) has organised an Annual Research Conference. The conference brings together academics and policymakers from the Netherlands and abroad to present and discuss new research. The topic is selected every year from an area relevant for DNB. 

Forthcoming

29 - 30 October 2020: 23rd Annual Research Conference "Monetary Non-Neutrality: The Real Effects of monetary Policy in the Short and Long-Run"
De Nederlandsche Bank, Amsterdam

In recent years the strong response of Central Banks to the weak economic conditions has pushed Monetary Policy to explore uncharted territories. As the phase of low inflation and low natural rates extend over time, major Central Banks are in the process of reviewing their strategies, a process that turns out to be extremely challenging in light of the sudden advent of the coronavirus pandemic. 
In the effort to provide a sound scientific background to those strategies, we aim at answering to the following questions: Which are the relevant channels of the Monetary Policy transmission mechanism? How strong and long-lasting are the effects of Monetary Policy? Are there any long-run consequences of persistently low nominal interest rates? What are the limits of Monetary Policy? Are there undesired or unexpected effects from QE? What are the long-run implications of the massive monetary expansion triggered by the coronavirus pandemic?
