The EBI is an international centre for banking studies in Frankfurt established as a joint venture of various European universities ( EBI is structured to promote the dialogue between scholars, regulators, supervisors, industry representatives and advisors in relation to issues concerning the regulation and supervision of financial institutions and financial markets from a legal, economic and any other related viewpoint.

The newly founded YRG is an inter-disciplinary and international platform for exchange and mutual learning for early stage researchers in the rapidly developing area of banking law and policy. Under the wings of the EBI, the YRG will conduct research, promote debate and dialogue between PhD researchers in relation to issues concerning regulation and supervision of financial institutions and financial markets.
