The scientific activity is carried out through a single programme, “Banking structures, risk and performance : lessons for prudential systems”, that focuses on two themes : “Capital structures, banking strategies and risk : challenges for supervision” and “balance sheet constraints and banking risk : lessons for regulation”.
These two themes must play a role in the development of methods and tools used by banking and monetary authorities to help prevent bankruptcies and crises ; as such, they contribute to the security and stability of the financial system and also raise the issue of the impact exerted by new prudential rules on the performance of economies.
