On 23-24 November 2023, the Research and Policy Network (RPN) on FinTech and Digital Currencies of the Centre for Economic Policy Research (CEPR) and the European Central Bank (ECB) organised a joint conference on the Macroeconomic Implications of Central Bank Digital Currencies (CBDCs) at the ECB in Frankfurt am Main.

The conference brought together academics and policymakers to discuss the theoretical and practical aspects of central bank digital currencies (CBDCs). Relying on a combination of research presentations, keynote speeches and panel discussions, it aimed to advance our understanding of the potential benefits and costs of CBDCs from a macroeconomic and policy perspective.
