At the beginning of 2017, four economists carried out economic and financial research at CEFER; all of them were internationally-experienced researchers who had acquired their PhDs at Lithuanian and foreign universities. Their aim is to bring together academic knowledge and innovative research methods, allowing to creatively address relevant issues.
Bank of Lithuania researchers also conduct applied research.
Currently, the Applied Macroeconomic Research Division employs eight economists and one statistician. Their research scope includes monetary and fiscal policy, modelling and forecasting, convergence research, and financial stability.
