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, 2017 and 2018 UniCredit Foundation supported the Award and each of the 3 Award winners received a financial prize. The EEA thanks the Foundations for their kind support.
