RES announces first Institutional Members


The Royal Economic Society is delighted to announce the Bank of England, the Government Economic Service and Frontier Economics as its first Institutional Members.

RES Institutional Membership has been developed with the needs of organisations in mind, including economic consultancies, regulators, think tanks and government departments. Institutional Members receive various benefits including the option of sponsoring or proposing a special session at conference, the organisation’s staff receiving the popular quarterly RES Newsletter and an invitation to an annual breakfast meeting with a keynote speaker.

This new membership category will sit alongside the Society’s Individual and Group Membership categories, the latter of which is geared towards academic departments and research institutes.

Huw Pill, Chief Economist at the Bank of England said: “In deepening our collaboration with the RES through institutional membership, we look forward to benefiting further from the Society’s research work, facilities and programmes.”

Sam Beckett and Clare Lombardelli, Joint Heads of the Government Economic Service said:

“It has been great to work more closely with the RES over the last year, so we’re delighted to be joining as institutional members to continue our relationship and shared good work”

Dan Elliott, at Frontier Economics said:

“Frontier Economics is excited to be one of the first Institutional Members of the RES. We see our membership, first and foremost, as a way for Frontier to support the excellent work of the Society and the academic economics profession more generally. But we also see the IM scheme providing an important conduit for the exchange of ideas between academic and professional economists.”
