When requested by the NGFS, INSPIRE also commissions outside research to inform work products developed by the NGFS. Currently, such work includes the following projects:
INSPIRE has released both comprehensive and targeted research calls that have incorporated a broad range of research topics aligned to the NGFS’s five dedicated workstreams. Originally this research portfolio could be organized into five thematic areas, see here, however, as the narrative has quickly evolved from why central banks and supervisors should act to how they should act, INSPIRE established a research theme orientated around assessing the impact and effectiveness of policies, see here. Most recently and in response to the COVID-19 crisis, INSPIRE has introduced a new research area focused solely on supporting central banks and supervisors deliver sustainable crisis response measures.
