Participation in the network
Interested persons can join the network and support activities. The network is open to all those who agree with the objectives and the mission of FRSN and consider these aims as valuable and reasonable. There are no obligations regarding the participation in the network, but we expect some responsiveness. It is up to you in which form you would like to contribute. Future activities can be determined with your ideas and input.
The initiative is a starting point for dialog, networking and cooperation. It offers a frame for views exchange and opinion building with the aim to foster financial stability, to improve regulation and to advance financial reforms. For participation no charges exist. You can quit any time. Institutional participation and cooperation are possible and welcomed as well.
Over the past years FRSN has established manyfold contacts to institutions, companies and organisations which are a valuable asset as regards developing the initiative. In 2017 and 2018 we are planning concrete activities to put the initiative on a more stable basis and generate more reach. The initiative shall also take the form of a charitable organisation.
As regards the conferences, FRSN has been collaborating in the last years with the German Institute for Economic Research (DIW Berlin), ESMT Berlin, Brussels’ based think tank Bruegel, Jacques Delors Institut Berlin, Humboldt University of Berlin and Mannheim Centre for European Economic Research. Future cooperations are envisaged.
Funding comes from different sources, mainly from Martin Aehling himself. For the conferences we received grants from the endowment “Stiftung Geld und Währung” as well as from corporate funding partners. Put in relation, Martin Aehling covers more than 50 per cent of total funding of work, followed by the Stiftung Geld und Währung.
