The Bank Resolution online Academy will foster a deep and comprehensive understanding of the EU bank resolution rules and procedures. This 3-week online Academy is designed to provide participants from different backgrounds (public authorities, private practitioners and academics) with the opportunity to sharpen their knowledge on bank resolution, and to put in practice many of its building blocks and core elements via ‘learning by doing’.
The Academy’s instructors will deliver an overview on the EU resolution framework, including the revised Bank Recovery and Resolution Directive and the Single Resolution Mechanism Regulation, on the resolution objectives and on recovery and resolution planning. Particular emphasis will be given to more technical aspects such as the calibration of the Minimum Requirement for own funds and Eligible Liabilities (MREL)/Total Loss-Absorbing Capacity (TLAC), the external sources of resolution financing subject to state aid assessment, the role of deposit guarantee schemes in resolution, and the different valuation scenarios. The Bank Resolution online Academy will also foster a dialogue about the future challenges for the EU resolution framework, as well as the circumstances related to the COVID-19 pandemic. Finally, the Academy will engage with the more practical aspects of a resolution process, including the different roles assigned to national and EU authorities and the special features of cross-border cases.
The online Academy combines self-paced progression moments (with pre-recorded lectures) and live online activities. It also includes multiple instructor-led occasions for participants to work in groups (in breakout rooms and in forum discussions), including a simulation exercise of a resolution process.
