New online format: Series CIC Newsletter – March 2024

In 2022, the Centre for International Central Bank Dialogue made an innovative leap forward with the launch of its new online format: series. This format is designed to tackle current or emerging central banking topics, shedding light on them over an extended period of several weeks in individual online sessions. In these sessions, the topic is examined from different angles, disciplines or perspectives.

In 2024, we will present two series of paramount importance to us. The first, entitled “Greening the financial system”, focuses on climate risk and sustainability. In this series, you will have the opportunity to meet colleagues from the Bundesbank’s Sustainability Finance Data Hub and also discuss issues concerning machine learning and AI. This series will take place on a weekly basis from June to the end of July 2024.

The second series is entitled “Digital currencies”. This series will cover aspects including the technical implications of the introduction of a digital Euro, its impact on monetary policy, its effects on financial stability and the challenges it poses for banking supervision. This series will take place on a weekly basis (every Wednesday) from the end of August to the end of September 2024.

We invite all employees of our partner central banks to take part in these two series. They present an opportunity to expand knowledge, meet our experts and get in contact with each other to further develop activities in this field. More information can be found on our website.
