Workshop in Empirical Macroeconomics
The Transmission of Macroeconomic Shocks and Policy Challenges

The workshop takes place on April 13-14, 2023 and is hosted by the University of Innsbruck and the Liechtenstein Institute. 
Fiscal and monetary authorities face multiple challenges in safeguarding macroeconomic stability amidst the current crises. This workshop aims at discussing topical issues for the transmission of macroeconomic shocks through various channels – e.g., financial markets, expectations, or debt sustainability – and the role of fiscal and monetary authorities in smoothing the business cycle. Papers presented at the workshop are expected to make innovative use of macro and / or micro data.

We are delighted to announce an exciting workshop programme comprising papers studying the transmission of macroeconomic shocks and policy challenges.

We will have 5 sessions – 3 on Thursday, and 2 on Friday:

  • Inflation, Phillips Curve, and Monetary Policy
  • Unconventional Monetary Policy
  • Macroeconomic Risk, Uncertainty, and Financial Stability
  • Macroeconomic Shocks and Identification
  • Global financial markets

A detailed program can be downloaded here.

The first session on Thursday and Friday sessions will take place at the University of Innsbruck, SoWi campus (Universitätsstraße 15, 6020 Innsbruck):


The remaining sessions on Thursday will take place off-campus with organized transport. The registration for the workshop has already been closed.

We are looking forward to meeting you all in Innsbruck. Please contact for any queries.

Best regards, 

The organizing committee
