Amsterdam School of Economics (ASE) professor Cars Hommes (Quantitative Economics Section) has received the Wim Duisenberg Research Fellowship from the European Central Bank (ECB).
The Fellowship allows recipients to conduct policy-related economics research within the Directorate General Research of the ECB. The title of his research proposal is Behavioral & Experimental Macroeconomics and Policy Implications. In his proposal, Hommes stated that the research examines a new behavioural approach to policy analysis and aims to “develop and discuss with researchers and policy makers at the ECB how this alternative approach can be used and incorporated into more standard financial-macroeconomics models for policy analysis.”
He will conduct research at the ECB from December 2017 through March 2018.
Candidates for the Fellowship are internationally recognised experts in their field of research. More about their research activities and the Fellowship can be read at the link below.
