These opportunities for comparison with the scientific community are intended to advance theoretical, empirical and policy analysis bearing on the Bank's institutional tasks.
Among its periodic initiatives, the Bank organizes the annual Paolo Baffi Lecture. This is given by an internationally renowned academic, who presents an original contribution on monetary or financial issues.
The annual fiscal policy seminar is devoted to a comparison of the results and experiences recorded by the public finances of a variety of countries.
