The Advisory Scientific Committee (ASC) conducts research to inform macroprudential decisions by the General Board. Its membership consists of the Chair of the Advisory Technical Committee and 15 experts representing a wide range of skills, experience and knowledge related to all relevant financial markets sectors. The Committee meets at least quarterly.
We are seeking international experts in macroprudential policy and systemic risk to become members of our Advisory Scientific Committee (ASC). Members will be chosen on the basis of their general competence and diverse experience in academic fields or other sectors, in particular in small and medium-sized enterprises or trade unions, or as providers or consumers of financial services. Employees of institutions from which the ESRB General Board draws its members are, however, not eligible to apply.
The ESRB will consider applications on the basis of the selection criteria. The Steering Committee will assess applications and propose candidates to the General Board. Selected candidates will be appointed to the ASC for a four-year renewable mandate and will be required to respect the professional secrecy obligations laid down in Article 8 of Regulation (EU) No 1092/2010 and the rules on confidentiality. Selected candidates will also be entitled to indemnities and to the reimbursement of expenses related to their participation in the activities of the ASC. Candidates who are neither appointed to the ASC nor discarded in the selection process will be retained on a reserve list, which will be valid for a period of two years.
Interested candidates are invited to submit their applications no later than 23:59 CET on 24 June 2022 to the following email address: email@example.com
ASC members contribute to a range of ESRB policy and research work, including the joint ASC-ATC groups on non-bank financial intermediation and interconnectedness. The Committee contributes to public debate on macroprudential policy by publishing ASC Reports and ASC Insights. Past contributions include a discussion on overbanking in the EU, a call for enhanced disclosure of carbon-intensive assets, analytical work for macroprudential stance and a report on digitalisation and the future of banking. The ASC also awards the annual Ieke van den Burg Prize for outstanding research conducted by young academics and is responsible for the ESRB Working Paper Series.
