The main purpose of research conducted by the Bundesbank is to develop and consolidate academic expertise in the fields of economics, banking and financial stability. This expertise is reflected in high-quality studies, which are published either as papers in leading specialist journals or as part of other analytical studies. Our research supports the Bundesbank's decision-making process and is a factor behind the central bank's excellent reputation in academic circles and at other policymaking institutions.
