The Young Researchers Group (YRG)
The Young Researchers Group (YRG)
In December 2017, the European Banking Institute established the Young Researchers Group for PhD researchers of European universities on the initiative of Lynette Janssen (Leiden University) and Agnieszka Smoleńska (European University Institute). YRG is supported by EBI Academic Board Members Profs. Matthias Haentjens and Ignacio Tirado.
The YRG is an inter-disciplinary and international platform for exchange and mutual learning for early stage researchers in the rapidly developing area of banking law and policy. Under the wings of the EBI, the YRG conducts research, promotes debate and dialogue between young researchers in relation to issues concerning regulation and supervision of financial institutions and financial markets. Specific projects undertaken by the YRG Members include PhD Workshops organised in cooperation with EBI, support of EBI’s Workstreams and EBI Newsletter (María Cecilia del Barrio Arleo and Carlos Bosque) and the Virtual Workshop sessions since 2020 (Lukas Böffel).
