Enhancing the scientific value of the Banque de France's archives and promoting historical research are primarily the responsibility of Michel Margairaz, professor at Université Paris 1 Panthéon-Sorbonne, and Olivier Feiertag, professor at the University of Rouen.
Research revolves around three main themes:
The history of central banks, and their place and role – internationally as well as domestically – in the history of currencies, credit and exchange.
The history of the Banque de France and economics, and its commercial banking activities, particularly through the history of its branches and their relations with representatives of the local economy.
The history of the Banque de France's employees, its social policies and the changes in its management structures.
Historical research grants are allocated to students properly enrolled in Masters courses, doctoral studies or post-doctoral research in the fields of history, sociology, political sciences, economics, law and management.
