The İMB aims to help further promote prominent research in economics and finance by inviting scholars from around the world that complement the expertise of the CBRT’s researchers through its Visiting Programs. These visits are essential part of the research effort at the CBRT as they provide a forum for the CBRT staff and their peers at related institutions and at academia to exchange ideas.

The İMB hosts scholars from universities and other institutions for one-time periods or on an on-going basis for a few days a week.The duration and the terms of the programs may vary depending on the specifics of the visit. Please contact us at for further details.
