Bank Al-Maghrib is the central bank of Morocco. It is composed of various departments including the Research Department. Founded in 1959 as a successor to the Banque d’Etat du Maroc (1906).

The Bernoulli Center for Economics was founded in 2006 at the University of Basel in honor of Daniel Bernoulli. Daniel Bernoulli is the founder of the Expected Utility Theory which is a cornerstone in modern economics. His famous article ‘Specimen Theoriae Novae de Mensura Sortis’ was published in 1738. Daniel Bernoulli was a professor at the University of Basel in the 18th century. In honour of Bernoulli’s famous research, the Bernoulli Center for Economics invites economists, who have also been involved in path breaking research in economic theory, to hold the Bernoulli Lecture and hosts workshops and seminars to provide a platform for the academic exchange amongst economists.
