The partnership between the mentioned institutions will carry out research in three areas. The first is related to the analysis of the restructuring of financial sector and the process of financial deepening. The second research area is associated with the institutional and macroeconomic aspects of disinflation in the Central European economies and Russia. The final question addressed is the trade integration of Central European economies and Russia. In the case of the former group of countries the integration to European Union ,while in the latter to the WTO is analyzed.

The proposed research areas are partly overlapping allowing systematic analysis of underlying issues, while in some areas the experiences of Central European economies could be considered in Russia. The research is based on the extensive review of the existing literature, on country studies followed by comprehensive summary studies with conclusions and policy suggestions.
