Attending this virtual course was a great opportunity to expand my knowledge on the operational framework on monetary policy in a more structured manner. I was also able to compare its transfer mechanisms under different policy regimes. The combination of lectures and workshops is a great way to have a better understanding of the topics and also allowed me to identify different scenarios.

This virtual course was well structured and very interactive. It helped me to better understand the monetary policy terms and the close links between liquidity management and the design of the monetary policy instruments that a central banks use. Learning about the implementation of some specific instruments by the ECB gave me a more clear perspective about the COVID-19 crisis. The lecturers were great and they answered many questions.  Ms. Tamara Cristina Nicolae, National Bank of Romania, Virtual Course on Monetary Policy Implementation, March 8-12, 2021

I attended the virtual course on Financial Education (FE) in February, 2021. During this tough times of COVID-19, when face-to-face meetings are limited, online training organized by JVI with the help of The Oesterreichische Nationalbank (OeNB), was an excellent opportunity for me to get theoretical and practical knowledge on Financial education and Financial literacy (FL). Professionals from different universities and practitioners from The World Bank and other organizations shared their knowledge and experience about key stakeholders’ engagement in promoting FE and FL, targeting groups and products, designing programs and channels, and how FE and FL activities can be best coordinated across institutions and countries to ensure sustainability. The course presented examples of different FE tools and gave the opportunity for the participants to introduce best practices in their countries and to effectively discuss and exchange their experience on these topics. I would highly recommend this online training to everyone who is interesting in this field. Alexander Memov, Bulgarian National Bank, Virtual course on Financial Education, February 22-26, 2021

It is challenging to offer a course on competitiveness - a very elusive and ambiguously defined concept, especially on the macro level. That is why I highly appreciate the issues discussed during the course and the practical approach to all topics. The idea of "competitiveness", competitiveness indicators, and a policy related to competitiveness were fully unpacked during the course.   Magdalena Olczyk – Gdansk University of Technology, Poland Austrian Authorities Virtual Course on Competitiveness, Growth and Crisis, March 01 - 12, 2021

Fostering growth and handling tumultuous periods are the primary obligations of an economist. "Competitiveness" is the umbrella of concepts, tools, and policies that can serve to catalyze growth and buffer crisis. Integrating the environmental and social aspects of life into the discussions about competitiveness and disrupting the traditional economic models related to it was what I liked the most from the "Competitiveness, Growth and Crisis" course. Amid the COVID-19 crisis, the insights conveyed were distinctly beneficial.  Olsi Pajo - Bank of Albania Austrian Authorities Virtual Course on Competitiveness, Growth and Crisis, March 01 - 12, 2021

Through a nice balance of lectures and training sessions, the course covered very complex issues and allowed me to deepen my understanding of competitiveness. The theoretical concepts were nicely linked with the data to support it. Participants’ engagement in training sessions and group work was particularly useful. The top-quality lecturers enriched my knowledge related to competiveness, growth and crisis.  Vladimir Simic - University of Split, Croatia Austrian Authorities Virtual Course on Competitiveness, Growth and Crisis, March 01-12, 2021
