The CEPREMAP hosts the Macroeconomic Observatory, a research team dedicated to macroeconomic analysis directed by François Langot. Its goal is to:
help central banks and other policy institutions to develop their own macroeconomic models based on the latest theoretical and empirical developments;
advance the research in the field of computational techniques devoted to the resolution and estimation of these macroeconomic models;
develop shared tools and resources to support international macroeconomic research;
conduct analysis of French, European and world economies.
In particular, the CEPREMAP modelling team leads the development of Dynare, a software for handling a wide class of economic models, which has received wide acceptance within both academic and policy circles. The Dynare development is supervised by Stéphane Adjemian and Sébastien Villemot.
The team coordinates the development of DBnomics, an open data portal aggregating public economic data as released by national and international producers. The website is intended as a valuable resource for researchers working on reproducible macroeconomics, public policy experts, data-journalists, civil society organizations and decision-makers.
The team has also developed long-term relationships with policy institutions, in particular the International Monetary Fund, the Banque de France, the European Commission and the Cabinet Office of the Prime Minister of Japan.
