Seminar Series in Finance and Macroeconomics

Jointly Organized by

The Faculty of Economics and Management and the Central Bank of Cyprus

The aim of the seminar series in Finance and Macroeconomics is to promote scientific research in finance, macroeconomics and their interactions, and creating opportunities for exchange of scientific views with researchers from abroad. The main sponsors of the seminar series is the Bank of Cyprus Endowed Chair in Finance and the Central Bank of Cyprus.

Seminars are of scientific character but they are usually formatted for a wider public audience. Given the international background of the invited researchers, seminars are typically given in English. Since September 2009, seminars are jointly organized with the Department of Economics and the Central Bank of Cyprus (CBC).
