Current focus areas

  • Economics
    “Financial markets and financial stability”
    (applicable for the decision meetings in 2017 and 2018)
    An economy that performs well and efficiently requires a stable and robust banking and financial system. Trust in the stability of the banking and financial system is indispensable for the smooth and efficient supply of funds to the corporate, private and public sectors, and this trust must be consistently upheld. To this very day, the impact of the global financial crisis is being felt in both Austria and the EU. The OeNB has therefore launched the focus area “Financial markets and financial stability.” The aim is to provide funding for research projects that illustrate the importance of maintaining financial stability in Austria and Europe and devise, assess and eventually propose economic policy instruments and macroprudential measures to prevent future financial crises and the high economic costs they entail.
