Collaboration between policymakers and academia is essential to progress in the public sphere—and from our perspective it fosters more innovative central banking. Creating those ties is the raison d’être for the Fellowship Program. It’s an ideal forum for building a shared experience that is enriching and valuable for all involved.”
