BOFIT's aim is to conduct policy-oriented, applied, research that is methodologically sound and well-grounded in current economic theory. An important part of our work is to get connected to transition research carried out by our colleagues in the domestic and foreign academia. For this purpose, we run a regular seminar series at BOFIT, designed to stimulate discussion and support work-in-progress. The institute has also close links with e.g. the IMF, the World Bank, the EBRD and WIDER. BOFIT Seminars are open to all economists interested in the subject areas covered. Please inform India Roland at BOFIT, about your participation tel. +358 10 831 2268 or e-mail email@example.com.
