Money and Finance Research Group
The Money and Finance Research (Mo.Fi.R.) group was established in 2007 with the aim of investigating, from both the empirical and theoretical points of view, the evolution of the financial system as the collection of financial institutions, intermediaries and markets and understanding the real consequences of that evolution for the development of the economic system at the regional, national and international levels.
This mission is fulfilled through a variety of activities, including sponsored research, seminars, conferences carried out by a bulk of economists from the Department of Economics and Social Sciences of the Università Politecnica delle Marche, in cooperation with researchers from other universities, post-doc research fellows, PhD students and graduate students.
12th MoFiR workshop on banking - July 6-7, 2023 - Naples, Italy.
Keynote speaker: Vasso Ioannidou (Bayes Business School (formerly Cass) and CEPR). The complete program is available here.
