Professor Benjamin Born, Associate Professor of Macroeconomics at Frankfurt School, has been promoted to Research Fellow at the Centre for Economic Policy Research (CEPR). He has been a Research Affiliate in CEPR’s Monetary Economics and Fluctuations and the International Macroeconomics and Finance programmes since 2015.
CEPR was founded in 1983 to enhance the quality of economic policy-making in Europe and beyond, by fostering high quality, policy-relevant economic research, and disseminating it widely to decision-makers in the public and private sectors. CEPR offers a broad range of services and opportunities for its research members to take advantage of, including fundraising, project initiation and coordination, organization of workshops and conferences and research publication, for example on https://VoxEU.org, CEPR’s widely read policy portal.
While CEPR Research Affiliates are promising young researchers shortly after completing their PhD, CEPR Research Fellows are established researchers who are selected based on their publications in leading journals, evidence of strong potential for collaboration with other CEPR researchers and research interests in line with those of CEPR areas. They are appointed for four-year renewable periods, to maintain selectivity, competition, and a continuous infusion of new people and ideas.
Benjamin Born’s research focuses on Macroeconomics and Empirical Methods, with a focus on Business Cycles, Fiscal and Monetary Policy, and Heterogeneous Agents.
