We are doing science for policy
The Joint Research Centre (JRC) is the European Commission's science and knowledge service which employs scientists to carry out research in order to provide independent scientific advice and support to EU policy.
Stefan Hohberger is a researcher at the European Commission's Joint Research Centre (JRC) in Ispra, Italy.
He works on the development of the Global Multi-country model (GM model), an estimated multi-country dynamic stochastic general equilibrium (DSGE) model that can be used for spillover analysis, forecasting and medium term projections. Its development is jointly performed by the Joint Research Centre and DG ECFIN.
He has obtained his PhD at the University of Bayreuth in 2014 and was a visiting scholar at the Centre for Applied Macroeconomic Analysis (CAMA) at the Crawford School of Public Policy at the Australian National University in Canberra.
His research activities are in the fields of applied international economics, open economy macroeconomics, monetary and fiscal policy in the EMU and global sensitivity analysis - see his RePEc page.
He is periodically contributing to the European Commission's Spring and Autumn economic forecast by providing a model-based quantification of the main drivers of real GDP growth in the euro area.
