The Banque de France GVE Data Science Group and the OECD Innovation LAB are holding their annual conference, on June 28, 2022.
With the rapid pick-up in inflation in recent months, this conference aims to bring together recent research using big data and new tools on ways to track and understand inflation in real-time.
