Young Economist Award

The EEA has bestowed the Young Economist Award to the authors under 30 years of age or no more than 3 years past a PhD defence of outstanding papers presented during contributed sessions of the EEA annual congresses for over 20 years. In 2016, the EEA Council decided that eligible candidates (and all co-authors) should be no more than 3 years past a PhD defense.

From 2009 to 2015, the Award was known as the FEEM Award and sponsored by the Fondazione Eni Enrico Mattei. In 2016 UniCredit & Universities Foundation supported the Award and each of the 3 Award winners received €3,000. The EEA thanks the Foundations for their kind support.
