The aim is to produce scientifically high-level research and to support the preparation of monetary policy and macroprudential analysis. The Bank's research function endeavours to establish close cooperation with the academic research community, and the researchers are active participants in European research networks and research cooperation between central banks.
The research activities of the Bank of Finland are primarily carried out in two units: the Research Unit and BOFIT (The Bank of Finland Institute for Economies in Transition).
The Research Unit's key research areas are the interaction between and stability of the macro economy and the financial markets.
