Research Centre


Research at the Deutsche Bundesbank has the primary goal of developing and maintaining scientific expertise in the areas of economics, banking and financial stability. This expertise is reflected in high-quality research in the form of papers publishable in top academic journals and other analytical studies. It guides central bank policy decision-making and helps establishing and maintaining a strong reputation of the Deutsche Bundesbank in academia and other policy institutions.

An overview on the research centre's tasks and main research areas is provided by Heinz Herrmann, Head of Research.


The research programme 2014/15 provides an overview of ongoing and planned research projects for this year and next.
