Leibniz Institute for Financial Research SAFE
The SAFE has been a partner of the YES! – Young Economic Summit since 2020.
The Leibniz Institute for Financial Research SAFE (“Sustainable Architecture for Finance in Europe”) is dedicated to interdisciplinary research on the financial markets and their players in Europe as well as to research-based, independent policy advice. The Institute focuses on the cooperation of researchers from the fields of economics, law, and political science as well as on the diversity of scientific methods.
A new concept for professional policy advice focused on Berlin, Brussels, and Wiesbaden is the Center’s second pillar. Based on independent academic research, the SAFE Policy Center maintains a permanent dialogue with members of governments and parliaments about topical questions on financial markets. Its aim is to develop answers towards a better regulatory framework.
SAFE relies on the interdisciplinary cooperation of currently about 30 professors, 15 postdocs and a large network of scholars from research institutions worldwide. Together, they pursue the goal of contributing to a sustainable financial architecture in Europe. The nucleus consists of two pillars: Basic and applied research on all major financial topics as well as policy advice. This includes the dissemination of relevant research results to European decision-makers in politics, regulation and administration.
