Collecting, processing and communicating information
The information collected and prepared by the Brussels Representative Office feeds into the OeNB’s work related to Economic and Monetary Union. The Brussels Representative Office also answers specific queries from the OeNB head office and acts as a point of contact, in particular for OeNB staff, in Brussels.
The team of the Brussels Representative Office regularly holds lectures in Brussels and Austria. Furthermore, it organizes various events, such as meetings and panel discussions, and maintains a network with other central banks. Organizing and participating in these events helps ensure that the OeNB is always well-informed about relevant topics.
