The initiative is intended to be a year-long event that brings together academic, financial, and government leaders to share cutting-edge behavioural research insights in policy making. At the end of each year an international workshop is held at Bank of Italy with the partnership of Max Planck Institute in Berlin.
It is aimed to facilitate the behavioural finance and economic discourse to improve financial regulatory outcomes through the exchange of professional views on investment science, behavior, regulations and policies. Such multidisciplinary behavioral-based approach to economics should favor the development of financial market regulations and, more in general, of macroeconomic action taking into account and influencing people’s behavior.
The concluding workshop in Rome will be focused each year on a particular emerging topic of behavioural finance. The proceedings will be published by Edward Elgar Publisher.
