Young economists’ essay awards
The EARIE Conference is aiming to encourage and foster young researchers in Industrial Economics, and the Young Economists’ Essay Awards (YEEA) support that aim by recognizing innovative, impressive work that is likely to have an impact. The awards are sponsored by Elsevier Publishers.
The criteria for the YEEA are that the author (or all authors of a multiple-authored paper) must be under 35 years old and have completed his or her PhD less than five years ago. Each year one of the YEEAs recognises work with a policy contribution and is dedicated to the late Paul Geroski. This year is the 12th time that EARIE bestows this award in Paul Geroski’s memory.
More than 100 submissions were eligible for the award and were considered by a committee consisting of Volker Nocke (UCLA, Chair), Xavier Vives (IESE), John Sutton (LSE), Michelle Sovinsky (U Mannheim) and Alessandro Gavazza (LSE). The three YEEA winners were announced during the Conference Dinner.
